Polish Supreme Court ruling dated 8 August 1931 Case No. R 395/31
The demand for a holding that the arbitration clause is deprived of legal force is properly grounded on §583(2)(2) of the [former Austrian] Civil Procedure Code, pursuant to which an arbitration clause loses its binding force not only when an arbitrator expressly referred to in the clause refuses to perform the obligation imposed on him as a result of accepting the duties of an arbitrator, but also when this is done by an arbitrator appointed by a party pursuant to the arbitration clause. In both of these instances, both parties have a right to demand a ruling that the arbitration clause is deprived of legal force.
