Should either Party refuse or neglect to join in the appointment of the arbitrator(s) or to furnish the arbitrator(s) with any papers or information demanded, the arbitrator(s) may proceed ex parte. (c) Hearing. A hearing on the matter to be arbitrated shall take place before the arbitrator(s) in Los Angeles County, California, the time and place to be selected by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) shall give each Party written notice of the time and place at least 30 days before the date selected.

Evidence may be admitted or excluded in the sole discretion of the arbitrator(s).

If there is only one arbitrator, his or her decision shall be binding and conclusive on the Parties, and if there are three arbitrators, the decision of any two shall be binding and conclusive. The submission of a dispute to the arbitrator(s) and the rendering of a decision by the arbitrator(s) shall be a condition precedent to any right of legal action on the dispute. A judgment confirming the award may be given by any superior court having jurisdiction, or that court may vacate, modify, or correct the award in accordance with the prevailing provision of the California Arbitration Act. (e) New Arbitrators. If three arbitrators are selected, but no two of the three are able to reach a consensus regarding the determination of the dispute, then the matter shall be decided by three new arbitrators who shall be appointed and shall proceed in the same manner, and the process shall be repeated until a decision is agreed on by two of the three arbitrators selected.
