AAA Arbitration. If Client’s Lease contains a mandatory arbitration provision requiring any disputes regarding the Lease, performance thereunder, or damages caused by the Lessee’s operations to be resolved and determined by arbitration, the Attorneys will seek to file and pursue the Client’s arbitration claims against Chesapeake Appalachia and any other appropriate gas companies jointly with those of other Group Clients, on a group basis, by filing one or more arbitration demands and statements of claim on behalf of multiple Group Clients, and/or by consolidating the Client’s arbitration claims with those of other Group Clients. The Client acknowledges that the Attorneys have informed the Client that AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules presently do not specifically address (whether by permitting or by prohibiting) the filing and arbitration of single arbitration proceedings on behalf of multiple claimants with similar or common claims, or the consolidation of separate arbitration proceedings, and that the AAA has indicated that it does not accept joint or group filings, or permit consolidation of separate claims, in the absence of a court order. Accordingly, the Attorneys will proceed as follows. The Attorneys will first seek to file the Client’s arbitration claims against Chesapeake Appalachia jointly with those of other Group Clients, and, if successful, to consolidate such claims with the arbitration claims of other Group Clients. If the AAA refuses to accept such filings, or to permit consolidation, the Attorneys will commence appropriate litigation to seek to compel or permit the AAA to accept such filings and/or to permit the consolidation of previously filed group claims. If the Attorneys are successful in obtaining a court order compelling or permitting the AAA to accept group filings and/or to permit consolidation of previously filed group claims, the Attorneys will represent the Client concurrently with other Group Clients in the arbitration of their respective Group Claims. If the Attorneys are unable to obtain a court order which causes the AAA to accept group filings and/or to permit consolidation of previously filed group claims, the Attorneys will not pursue the arbitration of the Client’s claims against Chesapeake Appalachia unless the Client advances and undertakes to pay all filing fees, hearing fees, and arbitrator fees required to pursue their arbitration claims on an individual basis.
