What is Arbitration?

In Arbitration, also called Private Adjudication, the parties present evidence to the Arbitrator which supports their position in the legal dispute.  The neutral Arbitrator makes the decision based on the evidence presented in conformity with the law, and that decision is binding on all parties.
