This matter is before the Court upon multiple motions filed by the parties in this case. The Petitioners Grupo Unidos Por El Canal, S.A. ("GUPC") and Sacyr, S.A. initiated this action requesting that the Court vacate a final arbitral award. Thereafter, the Petitioners filed an amended motion to vacate (ECF No. 15), which the Respondent Autoridad del Canal de Panama ("ACP") seeks to dismiss (ECF No. 43), and opposes in substance (ECF No. 44). The Respondent ACP also filed a motion to confirm the arbitration award (ECF No. 50). For the reasons set forth below, the Court finds that the Petitioners' motion to vacate is time-barred, and that ACP's motion to confirm should be granted in part.
