APPLICABLE TO ELECTRONIC DATA INTERFACE

 

4.4.2. Within thirty (30) days of receipt of the written demand,

set forth in Section 4.4.1, or as soon thereafter as is

practicable for the parties and the Arbitrator(s), the parties

shall enter into binding arbitration. The proceeding shall be

conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the

American Arbitration Association then in effect. The parties

shall select and agree upon a single Arbitrator and that one

Arbitrator shall render the decision. If the parties are unable

to agree upon a single Arbitrator, GTN and the User shall each

select a single neutral arbitrator, and the two selected neutral

Arbitrators shall select and agree upon a third neutral

Arbitrator, and the three (3) Arbitrators shall render the

decision. In the event that the two neutral Arbitrators selected

by the parties are unable to select and agree upon a third

neutral Arbitrator, GTN or the User may apply to any federal or

state court of competent jurisdiction for appointment of a third

neutral Arbitrator. Any arbitration award must be in writing,

and must contain the Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law upon

which the Arbitrator(s) relied in making the decision. In the

event there is a single Arbitrator, the arbitration award shall

be rendered by a majority and signed by such Arbitrator. In the

event the above provisions require three (3) Arbitrators, a

decision shall be rendered by a majority and signed by all of the

Arbitrators. Any arbitration award may be entered as a judgment

in any court having jurisdiction over the non-prevailing party.

The Arbitrator(s) shall award all reasonable costs, including

attorney fees, to the prevailing party. Arbitration proceedings

shall take place in Portland, Oregon.
