4. Penalty Enforcement via Arbitration Tribunal

I, {{arbitrator}}, acknowledge that if I or a Judge within my entity fail to fulfill the obligations or violate the rules set forth in this contract, that arbitrator and/or said Judge may receive the penalties enumerated for the corresponding violation.

I, {{arbitrator}}, agree that I, and any owners, if {{arbitrator}} is an entity, shall not seek to serve in another role of trust on the Telos Blockchain Network such as block producer candidate or core developer during the time that I am a candidate for arbitrator. Violation of the preceding by any Judge, as judged by an arbitration tribunal, shall be cause for the disqualification of said Judge from all service as a judge of arbitration for 365 days on first offence or 3 years on second or subsequent offenses.

6. Resignation and Removal for Inability to Perform Obligations

If I, {{arbitrator}}, am unable to perform obligations under the human-language terms of this contract I will resign my position by executing the ‘unregarb’ action.

I shall also recuse myself from a Case any time I receive attempts of undue influence regarding that Case from a terrestrial government or other entity that may have power over me. I shall not recuse myself from service for any other reason and shall endeavor to bring each Case to a just and timely resolution. Violation of the preceding by any Judge, as judged by an arbitration tribunal, shall be cause for the disqualification of said Judge from all service as a judge of arbitration for 365 days on first offence or 3 years on second or subsequent offenses.

8. Impartiality

I, {{arbitrator}}, agree to remain impartial and to conduct arbitration fairly and according to the documented practices of the selected rules of arbitration. I will seek to be consistent with precedents in similar Cases so as to apply a consistent application of the arbitration process. Violation of the preceding by any Judge, as judged by an arbitration tribunal, shall be cause for the disqualification of said Judge from all service as a judge of arbitration for 365 days on first offence or 3 years on second or subsequent offenses.

11. Amending Human-language Terms of ‘regarb’ Contract

I acknowledge that the human-language terms of this contract may be amended from time to time by TLOS owners voting on the ‘ratifyamend’ contract as described in the Telos Blockchain Network Operating Agreement. If I do not consent to the new terms of the amended human-language contract, I must remove myself from service as an arbitrator candidate.
