Answer ... The court will stay proceedings if there is an arbitration agreement and the respondent objects due to lack of jurisdiction. The court will not stay proceedings on its own motion. The respondent must object due to lack of jurisdiction at the point of its first act in the dispute at the latest; otherwise, the objection shall be dismissed.
Answer ... At the request of either party or the arbitrators, the court can appoint an arbitrator if there is a dispute regarding the appointment of arbitrator, if a party fails to appoint an arbitrator or if an arbitrator resigns or is unable to serve as arbitrator.
At the request of either party, the court can remove an arbitrator if the arbitrator is not independent.

At the request of the arbitrators, the court has the power to compel evidence (eg, to hear witnesses, experts and parties) for use in the arbitral proceedings if such evidence is not voluntarily provided directly to the arbitral tribunal.
