Parties may jointly request a second list of arbitrators or factfinders. A second list will consist of names drawn at random from the panel without regard to any restrictions requested by the parties.
Financial or Personal Interest of Arbitrator. No person shall serve as an arbitrator in any arbitration proceeding in which the arbitrator has any financial or personal interest in the result of the arbitration, unless the parties, in writing, waive such disqualification;
Disclosure by Arbitrator. Before accepting an appointment, the prospective arbitrator shall disclose any circumstances likely to create a presumption of bias or which he/she believes might disqualify him/her as an impartial arbitrator. Upon receipt of such information, the Board shall immediately disclose it to the parties. If either party declines to waive the presumptive disqualifications, the vacancy thus created shall be filled in the same manner as that governing the making of the original appointment.
Vacancies. If any arbitrator should resign, die, withdraw, refuse or be unable to, or be disqualified to perform the duties of his/her appointment, the Board shall, upon satisfactory proof, declare the appointment vacant. Vacancies shall be filled in the same manner as that governing the original appointment, and the matter shall be reheard by the new arbitrator, unless the parties mutually agree to a different procedure.
