Can an arbitration claimant be sued for malicious prosecution after having all there claims dismissed?

Columbus, OH |

If respondent feels the claims were meritless and it cost them money can he recover in a malicious prosecution suit? The final award stated no attorney fees or costs awarded to either side in the arbitration. Is the binding arbitration that final that respondent can not file any further claims to recover loss?

They can certainly bring the claim. Whether or not it stands is a different story. Consult a local attorney to review your documents and advise you.
