Contentions Are Not Evidence

In rare instances, we have seen parties submit their contentions as part of their evidence (see example below). This is not acceptable, and contentions submitted in this manner may not be considered by the arbitrator. When filing or responding, be sure to enter your contentions in the Contentions section and refrain from declaring/submitting them as an Evidence document.
