Brief Description of Case Type: 
These cases involve binding arbitrations between motor carriers and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) resulting from the motor carriers’ violations of safety regulations. See 49 U.S.C. §§ 521, 5123; 49 CFR ch. 3. Because the parties concede the violations as a condition of arbitration, the arbitrator’s sole function is to determine the total civil penalty amount and, if necessary, a schedule for its payment.
