Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Except for disputes that can be brought in small claims court, all disputes between you and the WGE, including any dispute regarding this Agreement, shall be exclusively settled through binding arbitration. Arbitration shall be conducted by and submitted to a single arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) selected from and administered by the San Diego office of JAMS (“JAMS”) in accordance with its then-existing Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures, and sole and exclusive venue and jurisdiction is so vested and consented to by both parties. The Arbitrator shall be authorized to award compensatory damages, but shall NOT be authorized to award non-economic damages, such as for emotional distress, or pain and suffering, or punitive, indirect, incidental or consequential damages. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements arising out of the arbitration, and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the Arbitrator and JAMS; however, the Arbitrator may award to the prevailing party reimbursement of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs (including, for example, expert witness fees and travel expenses), and/or the fees and costs of the Arbitrator. Within fifteen (15) calendar days after conclusion of the arbitration, the Arbitrator shall issue a written award and a written statement of decision describing the material factual findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. By agreeing to this binding arbitration provision, you understand that you are waiving certain rights and protections which may otherwise be available if a claim or dispute were determined by litigation in court, including, without limitation, the right to seek or obtain certain types of damages precluded by this arbitration provision, the right to a jury trial, certain rights of appeal, the right to bring a claim as a class member in any purported class or representative proceeding, and the right to invoke formal rules of procedure and evidence. For any dispute or claim arising under this Agreement that is not a Claim or that is not arbitrable as a matter of law, each party irrevocably agrees that the federal and state courts located in San Diego, California shall have jurisdiction to settle such dispute or claim, and each party irrevocably submits to such jurisdiction and irrevocably waives any objections based on inconvenient forum.
These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law principles. If the arbitration in this section provision is found unenforceable or not to apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction in San Diego, California.
If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
