Arbitration - No Class Action

Posted by Steven Ayr

All disputes arising under the Agreement must be submitted to binding arbitration in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts before an arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association in a proceeding pursuant to that organization’s rules and in accord with its code of ethics. The judgment of the arbitrator will be final and not subject to appeal or review by any judicial or administrative process, and may not be vacated. Judgment upon the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The Parties agree that each may bring claims against the other only in their individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings of more than one person or entity’s claims. In the event of arbitration, the arbitrator will apportion liability for the cost of the arbitrator, other costs, and a reasonable attorney’s fee, in accord with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, this Agreement, and applicable law. In the event a party fails to proceed with arbitration, unsuccessfully challenges the arbitrator’s award, or fails to comply with the arbitrator’s award, the other party is entitled to costs of suit, including a reasonable attorney’s fee, for having to compel arbitration or defend or enforce the arbitrator’s award.
