Deborah Hankinson won a sweeping victory for Tenaska Energy, Inc. before the Texas Supreme Court. The Court vacated a $125 million arbitration award, holding that one of the arbitrators had failed fully to disclose facts that might, to an impartial observer, create a reasonable impression of the arbitrator's partiality. The Court held that, when an arbitrator has made a partial disclosure, as occurred in this case, it must "examine the undisclosed information together against what [the arbitrator] actually disclosed," to conclude whether the undisclosed information might have conveyed to a reasonable person an impression of the arbitrator's partiality toward one of the parties. Applying that test to the facts, the court held the arbitrator showed "evident partiality" toward Ponderosa, requiring vacation of the arbitration award. The Court rejected Ponderosa's argument that the arbitrator's disclosure of the relationships in question was sufficient. Tenaska Energy, Inc., et al. v.
