There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.

You agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both you agree that parties have each waived any right to a jury trial.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property or other proprietary rights, or for defense and indemnification as provided for herein.
To the extent arbitrations does not apply, you agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to the Services, or to us, may only be brought by you, and may be brought by us, in a state or federal court located in New York, New York.
