The parties will share equally in the costs assessed for the arbitration and each party will bear its own attorneys' fees and costs. Any arbitration proceeding may not be consulidated or joined with any other proceeding and will not proceed as a class action. The parties understand that they would have had a right or opportunity to litigate Disputes through a court, to have a judge or jury decide their case, and to participate in a class action or other proceeding invulving multiple claimants, but they have instead chosen to have all Disputes decided through individual arbitration.

  • Place; Federal Arbitration Act. The place of arbitration will be Dane County, Wisconsin, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by all parties to the arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction invulving interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C.
