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

Asked about 1 year ago - 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?
