Notwithstanding this far-reaching transfer of powers to the arbitrator, a court may rule the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is excluded from arbitration pursuant to Section 21.6. The arbitrator is authorized to grant all legal remedies that would be possible in a court of law or fair. In some cases, the cost of arbitration may exceed the cost of litigation, and the right to be exposed may be more restricted in arbitration than in court. The arbitrator’s award is binding and can be executed as a judgment before any competent court. You can participate in arbitration hearings by phone. Arbitration hearings that are not conducted by telephone take place in a location that is reasonably accessible from your primary residence or at your choice in Los Angeles, California. Instructions for initiating arbitration can be found on the JAMS website and at the toll-free number above.
