  1. Dispute Resolution

    a. Mediation

If a dispute arises, in whole or in part related to this Agreement, and the dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation, the Parties agree to first try to settle the dispute in mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), under its mediation rules, before resorting to arbitration, litigation or any other dispute resolutions procedure. Costs of any mediation shall be shared equally by both parties. Any mediation will be held in Cook County, Illinois.

           b. Arbitration

If a dispute under this Agreement cannot be resolved by mediation, then the Parties agree to settle through binding arbitration in Cook County, Illinois. The arbitration will be governed by the rules and procedures of the AAA. If a Party has a basis for injunctive relief, the Party will not be precluded from seeking and obtaining injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. The Parties will agree within a reasonable period of time after notice is made on the other Party instituting the arbitration process whether to use one or three arbitrators, and if the parties cannot agree, then the parties will use a single arbitrator. The arbitrators may authorize only limited discovery upon showing of substantial need by the party seeking discovery. The arbitrators may rule on a summary basis, including without limitation on a motion to dismiss basis or summary judgment basis. The hearing will be held within one hundred eighty (180) days of the demand and must be concluded within 10 business days absent written agreement of the parties to the contrary. The arbitrator(s) may apply substantive law and award injunctive relief or any other remedy available from a judge. Any award by the arbitrator(s) will be final and entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof.  All aspects of the arbitration will be treated by the parties and the arbitrator(s) as confidential.

Each Party shall diligently continue to perform all of its obligations assumed under this Agreement pending final resolution of any dispute or claim arising hereunder. The Contractor’s performance of such disputed work pursuant to written notice by Women and Drones shall not in any way be construed as a waiver of the Contractor’s dispute or claim rights under the Agreement.

          c. Prevailing Party

In any dispute regarding this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs from the non-prevailing party. Determination of which party prevailed shall be made by the arbitrator(s) (or judge in case of seeking injunctive relief) and shall be authorized to make an award of such expense in any arbitration (or trial). Determination shall be made by reviewing the claims resolved (and shall not include claims resolved prior to taking of evidence at the arbitration/trial), considering the quantum of the Claims being prosecuted and defended, and then determining which Party achieved greater success by quantifying the amounts awarded the Party recovering damages and comparing same with the amounts that the Party paying damages saved (i.e. damages actually awarded versus those that were claimed).
