Judicial Reference (1) Other than (a) nonjudicial foreclosure and all matters in connection therewith regarding security interests in real or personal property; or (b) the appointment of a receiver, or the exercise of other provisional remedies (any and all of which may be initiated pursuant to applicable law), each controversy, dispute or claim between the parties arising out of or relating to this Loan Agreement or the other Loan Documents, which controversy, dispute or claim is not settled in writing within thirty (30) days after the "Claim Date" (defined as the date on which a party subject to this Loan Agreement gives written notice to all other parties that a controversy, dispute or claim exists), will be settled by a reference proceeding in California in accordance with the provisions of Section 638 et seq. of the California Code of Civil Procedure, or their successor section ("CCP"), which shall constitute the exclusive remedy for the settlement of any controversy, dispute or claim concerning this Loan Agreement, including whether such controversy, dispute or claim is subject to the reference proceeding and except as set forth above, the parties waive their rights to initiate any legal proceedings against each other in any court or jurisdiction other than the Superior Court in the County where the real property, if any, is located or Santa Clara County, if none (the "Court"). The referee shall be a retired Judge of the Court selected by mutual agreement of the parties, and if they cannot so agree within forty-five (45) days after the Claim Date, the referee shall be promptly selected by the Presiding Judge of the Court (or his/her representative). The referee shall be appointed to sit as a temporary judge, with all of the powers for a temporary judge, as authorized by law, and upon selection should take and subscribe to the oath of office as provided for in Rule 244 of the California Rules of Court (or any subsequently enacted Rule). Each party shall have one peremptory challenge pursuant to CCP (S) 170.6. The referee shall (x) be requested to set the matter for hearing within sixty (60) days after the date of selection of the referee and (y) try any and all issues of law or fact and report a statement of decision upon them, if possible, within ninety (90) days of the Claim Date. Any decision rendered by the referee will be final, binding and conclusive and judgement shall be entered pursuant to CCP (S) 644 in any court in the State of California having jurisdiction. Any party may apply for a reference proceeding at any time after thirty (30) days following notice to any other party of the nature of the controversy, dispute or claim, by filing a petition for a hearing and/or trial. All discovery permitted by this Loan Agreement shall be completed no later than fifteen (15) days before the first hearing date established by the referee. The referee may extend such period in the event of a party's refusal to provide requested discovery for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, legal objections raised to such discovery or unavailability of a witness due to absence or illness. No party shall be entitled to "priority" in conducting discovery. Depositions may be taken by either party upon seven (7) days written notice, and request for production or inspection of documents shall be responded to within ten (10) days after service. All disputes relating to discovery which cannot be resolved by the parties shall be submitted to the referee whose decision shall be final and binding upon the parties. Pending appointment of the referee as provided herein, the Superior Court is empowered to issue temporary and/or provisional remedies, as appropriate.
