6.7 Performance of this Agreement shall be subject to all valid laws,

orders, decisions, rules and regulations of duly constituted

governmental authorities having jurisdiction or control of any

matter related hereto. Should either of the parties, by force of

any such law, order, decision, rule or regulation, at any time

during the term of this Agreement be ordered or required to do any

act inconsistent with the provisions hereof, then for the period

during which the requirements of such law, order, decision, rule

or regulation are applicable, this Agreement shall be deemed

modified to conform with the requirement of such law, order,

decision, rule or regulation; provided, however, nothing in this

section 6.7 shall alter, modify or otherwise affect the respective

rights of the parties to cancel or terminate this Agreement under

the terms and conditions hereof.


6.8 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.
