Amazon`s litigation can also be complex; Many cases involve several parties as well as several problems. In some cases, courts grant requests to stay (postpone) proceedings to resolve certain issues before others are fully tried in a traditional judicial environment.2 These types of injunctions are intended to promote judicial economy and maintain the proper application of arbitration clauses, while preserving clarity in the resolution of each issue. Vocations are usually successful with some kind of forced admission and an action plan on how the seller will improve their procedures in the future. This ruins the possibility of winning an arbitration if the appeal loses. “If sellers admit to doing something wrong, the chances of success in an arbitration are zero,” said Counsel C.J. Rosenbaum. To initiate arbitration proceedings, you must send a letter in which you request arbitration and describe your claim to our Agent Agent Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98501. Arbitration is conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its rules, including the AAA`s supplemental procedures for consumer disputes. The aaa rules are available at www.adr.org or by phone at 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all registration, administration, and arbitration fees is subject to the AAA Rules.
We reimburse these costs for claims totalling less than $US 10,000, unless the arbitrator finds that the claims are frivolous. Similarly, Amazon does not collect attorneys` fees and expenses in arbitration proceedings unless the arbitrator finds that the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, on the basis of written deposits or in person in the country where you live or in another mutually agreed place. Attempts to use national courts to circumvent the arbitration clause have most often circulated. A case in Washington state for failing to transfer funds to third-party sellers failed when Amazon triggered arbitration. Amazon could have a new liability in counterfeit cases, following a ruling last week, which states that the company is liable when counterfeit products arrive at customers, even if it`s a transaction with third parties.
