Claims and Litigation No pending or, to the Company's knowledge, threatened, claims, suits or other proceedings exist with respect to any Employee Benefit Plan other than normal benefit claims filed by participants or beneficiaries.
Released Parties The Released Parties are the Company, all current and former parents, subsidiaries, related companies, partnerships, or joint ventures, and, with respect to each of them, their predecessors and successors; and, with respect to each such entity, all of its past, present, and future employees, officers, directors, stockholders, owners, representatives, assigns, attorneys, agents, insurers, employee benefit programs (and the trustees, administrators, fiduciaries, and insurers of such programs), and any other persons acting by, through, under or in concert with any of the persons or entities listed in this subsection, and their successors.
Infringement and Litigation 11.1 Each party shall promptly notify the other in writing in the event that it obtains knowledge of infringing activity by third parties, or is sued or threatened with an infringement suit, in any country in the LICENSED TERRITORY as a result of activities that concern the LICENSED PATENTS, and shall supply the other party with documentation of the infringing activities that it possesses.
Legal Action If you are dissatisfied with the determination of your claim, and have complied with applicable state and federal law, you are entitled to seek judicial review. This review will take place in an appropriate court of law. Under state law, you may not begin court proceedings prior to the expiration of sixty (60) days after the date you filed your claim. In no event may legal action be taken against us later than three (3) years from the date you were required to file the claim. For members covered by a group (employer sponsored) health plan, your plan may be subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), as amended. Under federal law, if your plan is subject to ERISA you may have the right to bring legal action under section 502(a) of ERISA after you have exhausted all appeals available under the plan. That means, for both medical and administrative appeals, federal law requires that you pursue a final decision from the plan, prior to filing suit under section 502(a) of ERISA. For a medical appeal, that final decision is the determination of the appeal. You are not required to submit your claim to external review prior to filing a suit under section 502(a) of ERISA. Consult your employer to determine whether this applies to you and what your rights and obligations may be. If you are dissatisfied with the decision on your claim, and have complied with applicable state and federal law, you are entitled to seek judicial review. This review will take place in an appropriate court of law.
Stockholder Litigation The Company shall give Parent the opportunity to participate in the defense or settlement of any stockholder litigation against the Company and/or its directors relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and no such settlement shall be agreed to without Parent’s prior written consent.
