7.8 The parties hereby agree, subject to the primary jurisdiction of the

Commission, that any dispute arising out of or relating to this

Agreement, or any breach thereof shall be submitted to final and binding

arbitration in Detroit, Michigan, in accordance with the Rules of

Commercial Arbitration of the American Arbitration Association (AAA)

then in effect. The dispute shall be decided by a panel of three

neutral arbitrators, qualified by education, training, and experience to

hear the dispute, chosen as follows. The party initiating the

arbitration proceeding shall name one arbitrator at the time it notifies

the other party of its intention to arbitrate their dispute, and the

responding party shall name an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days of

receiving the above notification. Within twenty (20) days of the

appointment of the second arbitrator, the two arbitrators shall select a

third arbitrator to act as chairman of the tribunal. If either party

fails to appoint an arbitrator within the allotted time or the two

party-appointed, neutral arbitrators fail to appoint a third arbitrator

as provided above, the AAA shall appoint the arbitrator(s). Any

vacancies will be filled in accordance with the above procedure. The

parties expressly agree to the consolidation of separate arbitral

proceedings for the resolution in a single proceeding of all disputes

that arise from the same factual situation, and the parties further

expressly agree that any issue of arbitrability or the existence,

validity, and scope of the agreement to arbitrate shall be decided by

the arbitrators. The parties further agree that either party may apply

to a court of competent jurisdiction, pending arbitration, for

injunctive relief to preserve the status quo, to preserve assets, or to

protect documents from loss or destruction, and such application will

not be deemed inconsistent with or operate as a waiver of the party's

right to arbitration. The arbitrators shall apply as the substantive

law to the dispute the laws of the State of Michigan, as specified in

section 7.1 of this Agreement.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have duly executed this Agreement

in one or more counterparts, which counterparts shall constitute one

integrated agreement, by their duly authorized officers effective as of the

day first above written.
