What one needs to realize is that arbitrators have pretty free reign and are not bound by many of the same codes that judges and courts are bound by. Additionally, arbitrator's awards have been upheld even when they have wrongly interpreted statutes as long as they were not contrary to the law or procured by fraud, which are the only grounds to overturn an arbitration award. If you have grounds to object to the award, then you need to file a motion to vacate the award, but suing the arbitrator for his award is not possible. If you have grounds for your appeal, then you should hire an attorney to pursue that appeal and realize that the courts will not allow you to put on a whole new case but will only review the judgment to make sure it was rendered based upon the correct interpretation of the law and was not procured by fraud, anything else the court will not interfere with.
