Transportation Arbitration Board, Inc.


Arbitration is similar to a judicial proceeding in that the arbitrator(s) take evidence, receive arguments, and issue a decision or award. Arbitration proceedings are generally less formal and not subject to the strict requirements of a court proceeding, and in many cases pleadings and evidence may be submitted in writing, thus avoiding actual appearances of witnesses and counsel. Arbitration may be binding or non-binding, depending on the agreement of the parties. If the arbitration is binding, the decision or award of the arbitrator(s) is enforceable as though it had been issued by a court of law.
