Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
1000 Darden Center Drive
Orlando FL 32837
The Notice shall describe the nature and basis of the claim or disputes and the specific relief sought. If you and we cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence arbitration.
For arbitration claims you assert against Darden in accordance with this section (but not for any arbitration claim against you) Darden will pay all of your administrative, hearing, and arbitrator’s fees and costs for the arbitration (but not the fees, expenses, and costs of your lawyers, experts, or witnesses) in excess of any filing fee you would have been required to pay to file the claim as a lawsuit in a state or federal court (whichever is greater) in the judicial district in which you reside. Unless unlawful, Darden will pay its, and you will pay your, lawyers’, experts’, and witness fees, expenses, and costs with respect to all claims. The arbitrator may award money or equitable relief in favor of only the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. Similarly, an arbitration award and any judgment confirming it apply only to that specific case; it cannot be used in any other case except to enforce the award itself. To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by all parties.
To the extent permitted by law, you will not agree to act as a representative or a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or participate as a member of a class of claimants in any lawsuit against company in any court, or in arbitration, with respect to any program claims. This section (confidential arbitration) will survive the termination of the relationship between you and Darden.
Darden or you may seek injunctive relief only in any state or federal court in Orange County, Florida, USA, and Company and you consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts in Orange County, Florida USA for injunctive relief purposes. The arbitrator shall have no authority to issue injunctive relief.
