For greater certainty, the application of article 34 is expressly excluded. Liability for costs will be decided through the arbitration process. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable legal fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
