Recently, the high-profile case against Lance Armstrong took a dramatic turn when the famous cyclist determined to not challenge the accusations against him in arbitration. His defense for such a move, amongst other things, was that the arbitral process was unfair, biased and violated his due process rights. In light of Mr. Armstrong's statements about the arbitral process, we'll take a look at due process in international sports arbitration and examine what has been learned from the reported case-law about the rights of the parties to present their case and be heard. In particular, we'll ask the question: does Lance Armstrong have a point?
