SECTION 28-9-8

§ 28-9-8. Hearings by arbitrators.

Subject to the terms of the submission or contract, if any are specified in the contract, the arbitrators selected as prescribed in this chapter must appoint a time and place for the hearing of the matters submitted to them, and must cause notice thereof to be given to each of the parties. They, or a majority of them, may adjourn the hearing from time to time on the application of either party for good cause shown or on their own motion, but not beyond the day fixed in the submission if a date has been set in the contract or submission for rendering their award, unless the time fixed is extended by the written consent of the parties to the submission or contract or their attorneys, or the parties have continued with the arbitration without objection to the adjournment.
