 Arbitration is a process of resolving disputes between two or more parties, without going to court.  It begins with an agreement between the parties in which they agree to submit their dispute to arbitration.  In an arbitration, usually one or three arbitrators who are unrelated to the parties or their dispute, hear evidence from the parties, similar to how it would be done in court.  Then in accordance with the terms of the agreement, the arbitrators deliberate and make their decision.  The agreement provides that the parties will accept the decision of the arbitrators.  Except in very rare circumstances, the decision of the arbitrators is final and not appealable.  It is usually far less expensive then going to court and decisions are rendered much more rapidly than are decisions by judges.
