7.6 Exhibit A attached hereto is incorporated herein by reference and

made a part hereof for all purposes.

 

7.7 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.
