In accordance with the spirit of this agreement to resolve amicably the disputes between the Parties, neither Party will take action against the other or the other's interests, either directly or indirectly, without first notifying the other party of an apparent problem, and the Parties will try to resolve the matter amicably between themselves prior to resorting to other remedies or avenues of resolution. Should a conflict arise that results in a complaint being filed in federal court, both parties agree that jurisdiction shall be in any US District Court with appropriate personal and subject matter jurisdiction in the matter.
