Governing Law and Chosen Courts

Add mandatory arbitration

Replace the second sentence of Section 14.3 with: “The parties will arbitrate any dispute about this Agreement in the state or county that encompasses the Chosen Courts, in English, and agree to finally settle all such disputes according to the Rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (“JAMS”). To the extent the JAMS streamlined rules are available, they will apply. The arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. To the extent a claim cannot legally be arbitrated (as determined by an arbitrator), the parties will bring the suit, action, or proceeding that cannot be arbitrated in the Chosen Courts and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Chosen Courts.”
