Remand to arbitrators for clarification not appealable

Here is an interesting decision on one of the finer points of federal appellate jurisdiction. In Murchison Capital Partners, L.P. v. Nuance Communications, Inc., No. 13-10852 (5th Cir. July 25, 2014), the court holds that it does not have appellate jurisdiction to review a district court’s order remanding a case to an arbitration panel for clarification. Judge Jones filed a seven-page dissent.
