Each party also agrees, subject to the Negotiation and Arbitration provisions above, not to bring any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement in any other court.

H) If any portion of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable by an authority of competent jurisdiction, then the specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect but the remainder of this Agreement shall survive in full force.
