MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT & CLASS ACTION WAIVER (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”)
The Released Parties care deeply about maintaining good relationships with fans. If Holder has a problem with ticket(s) or the Event, a telephone call to customer service may resolve the matter quickly and amicably. Any dispute not resolved informally must be resolved in accordance with this Arbitration Agreement.
Unless prohibited by federal law, Holder and the Released Parties agree to arbitrate any and all claims and disputes relating in any way to Holder’s purchase or use of this ticket, Holder’s participation in, attendance at, and/or observation of the Event, the Agreement, and any related dealings between them, including, without limitation, claims of bodily injury, sickness, and/or stolen or damaged property arising out of Holder’s attendance at and/or participation in the Event (“Arbitration Claims”), except for Arbitration Claims concerning the validity, scope, or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement, through BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. This Arbitration Agreement involves interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 (“FAA”), and not by state law.
In any Arbitration Claim to be resolved by arbitration, neither Holder nor the Released Parties will be able to have a court or jury trial or participate in a class action or class arbitration. Other rights that Holder and the Released Parties would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including the right to appeal. Holder and the Released Parties each understand and agree that by requiring each other to resolve all disputes through individual arbitration, *WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL. ALL DISPUTES SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING. *The arbitrator(s) may not consolidate the claims of multiple parties.
Arbitrations shall be administered by JAMS (“JAMS”) pursuant to the applicable JAMS rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated. You may obtain information about arbitration, arbitration procedures and fees from JAMS by calling 404-588-0900 or visiting www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is unable or unwilling to arbitrate a dispute, then the dispute may be referred to any other arbitration organization or arbitrator the parties both agree upon in writing or that is appointed pursuant to section 5 of the FAA. The arbitration shall take place in the city where the Ballpark is located. The arbitrator shall be authorized to award any relief that would have been available in court, provided that the arbitrator’s authority is limited to Holder and the Released Parties alone, except as otherwise specifically stated herein. No arbitration decision will have any preclusive effect as to non-parties. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding. The parties agree that this Arbitration Agreement extends to any other parties involved in any Arbitration Claims, including, but not limited to, any Accompanying Party and the Released Parties. This Arbitration Agreement shall take precedence over the rules of the arbitration organization or arbitrator in the event of any conflict.
The Released Parties will be responsible for paying all arbitration fees, except for the amount of filing fees Holder would have incurred in the state or federal court where the Event took place, whichever is less. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, Holder and the Released Parties may seek relief in a small claims court for Arbitration Claims within its jurisdiction. In addition, Holder and the Released Parties each may exercise any lawful rights to seek provisional remedies or self-help, without waiving the right to arbitrate by doing so. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement, if the foregoing class action waiver and prohibition against class arbitration is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be void. If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement other than the class action waiver and prohibition against class arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of the Agreement, the conclusion of the Event, and/or the bankruptcy or insolvency of a party (to the extent permitted by applicable law).
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, BUT YOU MUST EXERCISE THIS RIGHT PROMPTLY. If you do not wish to be bound by this agreement to arbitrate, you must notify us by mailing a written opt-out notice, postmarked within seven (7) days after the date of the Event. You must send your request to: Atlanta National League Baseball Club, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, Re: Mississippi Braves Ticket Arbitration, 755 Battery Avenue SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30339. The request must include your full name, address, account number, and the statement “I reject the Arbitration Agreement contained in my Mississippi Braves Ticket.” If you exercise the right to reject arbitration, the other terms of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as if you had not rejected arbitration.
Prior to initiating a lawsuit or an arbitration proceeding under this Arbitration Agreement, the Claimant shall give the other party or parties written notice of the Arbitration Claim (a “Claim Notice”) and a reasonable opportunity, not less than thirty (30) days, to resolve the Arbitration Claim. Any Claim Notice to one or more of the Released Parties shall be sent by mail to Atlanta National League Baseball Club, LLC, Attn: Legal Department, Re: Claim Notice - Mississippi, 755 Battery Avenue SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30339. Any Claim Notice must (a) identify the Claimant by name, address, email address, and telephone number; (b) explain the nature of the Arbitration Claim and the relief demanded; and (c) be submitted only on behalf of the Claimant, and not on behalf of any other party. The Claimant must reasonably cooperate in providing any information about the Arbitration Claim that the other party reasonably requests and must give the other party a reasonable opportunity to respond to the demand for relief.
IF ANY MINOR IS ACCOMPANYING TICKET HOLDER TO THE EVENT, TICKET HOLDER IS DEEMED TO HAVE AGREED TO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF SUCH MINOR AS HIS/HER PARENT OR GUARDIAN OR AS THE AUTHORIZED AGENT OF HIS/HER PARENT OR GUARDIAN. IF TICKET HOLDER DOES NOT WISH TO OR IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO GRANT THE FOREGOING RIGHTS, RELEASES, AND WAIVERS ON BEHALF OF THE MINOR, TICKET HOLDER SHOULD IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE BALLPARK WITH SUCH MINOR.
