The case involved a consulting agreement, which led to arbitration in Zurich. The sole arbitrator (Swiss lawyer Martin Bernet, a highly regarded arbitrator) assumed jurisdiction in 2005 and also held that the consulting agreement was valid in a subsequent award in 2007. New evidence was discovered and a request for revision was filed in 2008. The Federal Tribunal rejected the request for revision on March 14, 2008.
