[EFC Comment: As part of the settlement of this case, the parties agreed to set aside the arbitrator’s opinions, so they would not have precedential value. This not uncommon when settling cases which have already gone to arbitration. This accounts for the court's remark in citation (d) below. The opinions nevertheless are featured prominently in annotation (e) below and remain authoritative for their reasoning.]
