Arbitration; Governing Law This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia applicable to agreements made in and wholly to be performed in that jurisdiction, except for matters arising under the Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which matters shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with such laws. Any controversy or claim arising out of or related to the Transaction Documents or the breach thereof, shall be settled by binding arbitration in Atlanta, Georgia in accordance with the Expedited Procedures (Rules 53-57) of the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). A proceeding shall be commenced upon written demand by Company or any Investor to the other. The arbitrator(s) shall enter a judgment by default against any party, which fails or refuses to appear in any properly noticed arbitration proceeding. The proceeding shall be conducted by one (1) arbitrator, unless the amount alleged to be in dispute exceeds two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000), in which case three (3) arbitrators shall preside. The arbitrator(s) will be chosen by the parties from a list provided by the AAA, and if they are unable to agree within ten (10) days, the AAA shall select the arbitrator(s). The arbitrators must be experts in securities law and financial transactions. The arbitrators shall assess costs and expenses of the arbitration, including all attorneys' and experts' fees, as the arbitrators believe is appropriate in light of the merits of the parties' respective positions in the issues in dispute. Each party submits irrevocably to the jurisdiction of any state court sitting in Atlanta, Georgia or to the United States District Court sitting in Georgia for purposes of enforcement of any discovery order, judgment or award in connection with such arbitration. The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration shall be held in such place as set by the arbitrator(s) in accordance with Rule 55. Although the parties, as expressed above, agree that all claims, including claims that are equitable in nature, for example specific performance, shall initially be prosecuted in the binding arbitration procedure outlined above, if the arbitration panel dismisses or otherwise fails to entertain any or all of the equitable claims asserted by reason of the fact that it lacks jurisdiction, power and/or authority to consider such claims and/or direct the remedy requested, then, in only that event, will the parties have the right to initiate litigation respecting such equitable claims or remedies. The forum for such equitable relief shall be in either a state or federal court sitting in Atlanta, Georgia. Each party waives any right to a trial by jury, assuming such right exists in an equitable proceeding, and irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of said Georgia court. Georgia law shall govern both the proceeding as well as the interpretation and construction of this Agreement and the transaction as a whole.
Rules of Procedure The proceedings and business of the Committee shall be governed by Robert's Rules of Order unless otherwise waived by the Committee.
