Any arbitration procedure implemented under this arbitration agreement is managed by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), in accordance with its consumerist arbitration rules, in effect at the time of the opening of the arbitration, as amended by the terms set out in this agreement. Copies of these rules are available on the AAA (www.adr.org) website (the “AAA Rules”) or by phone from the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.

If two arbitrations were held every day of the year, it would still take more than 20 years for 15,000 cases to be resolved; This could be a good system of full employment for lawyers, but there are obvious drawbacks for both drivers and businesses. The deal could be the next step – in fact, Uber would have tentatively agreed to settle another arbitration panel submitted by O`Connor v.
