4. Initial Contact Conference. I will contact you within 2 business days to set up an initial, first contact Zoom meeting  at which time we will discuss the jurisdictional and administrative procedures associated with this service.

5. Initial Pre-hearing Conference. This Zoom conference is an arbitrator-party meeting. The agenda will cover the hearing protocols including and confidentiality or protective orders and the discovery process for the use of this model.

6. Discovery, given the limitation of a six-hour hearing, should focus on the discovery of material evidence obtained from: (a) the mutual contemporaneous exchange of documents by a date certain; (b) one set of interrogatories per party with deadlines for submission and response; (c) one set of requests for production per party with deadlines for submission and response; (c) one deposition per party by a date certain; and, (d) identification of potential hearing witnesses by a date certain

7. Hearing preparation includes the (a) identification and exchange of witness lists two (2) weeks before the hearing; (b) one pre-hearing brief each, of a mutually-agreed length,submitted four (4) business days before the hearing; (c) the exchange of numbered exhibit list to be presented ( share screened ) two (2) business days before the hearing; and, (d) an exchange of hearing witness list two (2) business days before the hearing;

8. Protective Orders and Motions practice. This service contemplates an expedited hearing with an early submission of any protective orders. Additionally, dispositive motion may be submitted however, they will not be considered until the hearing. Discovery motions will be addressed as they may arise. The arbitrator will set the date and time for a discovery hearing.

9. Arbitration Rules. North Carolina General Statutes Article 45C – Revised Uniform Arbitration Act, NCGA 1-569.1 governs these proceedings unless the parties agree to another set of rules.
