There have been those who have asked where do we obtain the authority to hold and or conduct Arbitration Hearing? The authority to preside over any controversy in the matter originates from the parties to a contract and the Federal arbitration act specifically sections 1, 2 and 5. As the contract must contain a commerce clause, an agreement to select an arbitrator and/or neutrals, be between at least two competent adults, if the conntract is a unilateral agreement and must be evidenced by a prior relationship and/or agreement between the parties. Along with that prior relationship there must be a duty and/or obliigation to respond, the effectiveness of a unilateral contrract, is that the parties perform an act, and/or action, and or inaction.
The state of New Hampshire has announced in the New Hampshire House bill 1778 the following:
“Statement of Purpose ... Further, the courts have found that corporate public servants who ignore their accountability as mandated in Bill of Rights, have by their silence and failure to fully inform the sovereign people of the consequences arising from the corporate "offer to contract," is deemed silent deception and inducement by fraud.”
“Private Law 114-31 114th Congress An Act For the Relief of Bradley Christopher Stark, Shawn Michael Rideout, and Certain Named Beneficiaries”
- In this instance the United States Congress after review by its judiciary committee has made the legal finding that the contract and arbitration award and settlement agreement, were binding on all parties- see Congressional record with reference to private law and bill “Private Law 114-31 114th Congress An Act For the Relief of Bradley Christopher Stark, Shawn Michael Rideout, and Certain Named Beneficiaries”
A court also may modify or correct a domestic arbitral award:
(a) where there was an evident material miscalculation of figures or an evident material mistake in the description of any person, thing, or property referred to in the award;
(b) where the arbitrators have awarded upon a matter not submitted to them, unless it is a matter not affecting the merits of the decision upon the matter submitted; and
(c) where the award is imperfect in matter of form not affecting the merits of the controversy. The court may also modify and correct the award, so as to effect the intent thereof and promote justice between the parties. …as noted, United States Congress came to the legal conclusion that the parties were entitled to the relief as specified in the arbitration award and the settlement agreement that resulted from the aforementioned award. And to note that because United States Congress documented that this was a contract that involve the United States which made applicable the provisions of the obligation of contract clause of the United States Constitution, the court lacked jurisdiction to make a legal determination as to the intent of the contractual obligation and/or the nature for which remedy was sought, 9 U.S.C. § 11.
