Arbitrator vs Arbiter?

This looks like something we can nitpick to death.

Do not confuse arbitrator with the very similar word arbiter. An arbitrator is someone who hears evidence and renders a decision in arbitrations but not in any other type of dispute.

If you have a mandatory arbitration clause in your contract you might not be fighting in court. Instead, you may find your case brought before an arbitrator who works for a private arbitration group.

In contrast, an arbiter is an impartial person or institution given the power to decide in any sort of controversy.

According to that definition, Bloch was both the arbitrator and the arbiter in the Kovalchuk dispute.
