Arbitration hearings for anti-doping rule violations are carried out by independent judges, who are not part of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. Hearings are heard before the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Witness testimony is given under oath, subject to penalty of perjury and cross examination. For more information on the arbitration process, please click here. If you have additional questions, please contact USADA’s Communications department at 719-785-2046, 719-785-2047, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
