(c)   Election of Arbitrator.  You and Galeton will confer after service of written notice of arbitration to select a single, agreed-upon arbitrator to arbitrate the applicable Dispute.  If you and Galeton are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within thirty (30) days after the date of such notice, the AAA will assign an arbitrator.  Any decision or award rendered in such arbitration proceeding will be final and binding on the Galeton Group and Your Group, and judgment may be entered thereon only in the State or Federal courts in Erie County of New York.
