He can't take it to court. That's a fundamental rule of collective bargaining and arbitration. The only thing that a court can do when arbitration has been collectively bargained for is hear an appeal to determine if the arbitrator's decision is "drawn from the essence" of the CBA. Even if they find that there's no way the arbitrator can be right, the only thing a court can do is send it back for another round of arbitration. This isn't going to court, period.
On an interesting note, Shyam Das is the same arbitrator that ruled in favor of Braun and is apparently not going to release a written ruling outlining why he ruled the way he did.
