Section 9.6 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Jury Trial

 

(a) This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the domestic laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict provision or rule (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware to be applied. In furtherance of the foregoing, the internal law of the State of Delaware shall control the interpretation and construction of this Agreement, even if under such jurisdiction’s choice of law or conflict of law analysis, the substantive law of some other jurisdiction would ordinarily apply.

 

(b) Courts within the State of Delaware will have exclusive jurisdiction (unless such courts deny jurisdiction) over all disputes between the parties hereto arising out of or relating to this Agreement and the agreements, instruments and documents contemplated hereby. The parties hereby consent to and agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. Each of the parties hereto waives, and agrees not to assert in any such dispute, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any claim that (i) such party is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, (ii) such party and such party’s property is immune from any legal process issued by such courts or (iii) any litigation commenced in such courts is brought in an inconvenient forum.

 

(c) Each Party hereto hereby irrevocably waives all right to trial by jury in any proceeding (whether based in contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any transaction or agreement contemplated hereby or the actions of any Party hereto in the negotiation, administration, performance or enforcement hereof.
