COPY OF THIS SECURITY AGREEMENT MAY BE FILED AS A WRITTEN
CONSENT TO A TRIAL BY THE COURT.
The parties prefer that any dispute between them be resolved in litigation
subject to a jury trial waiver as set forth in Section 13.7(c) ("Jury Trial Waiver"), but the
availability of that process is in doubt because of the opinion of the California Court of Appeal in Grafton Partners LP v. Superior Court, 9 Cal.Rptr.3d 511. This Section 13.8 will be applicable until the California Supreme Court completes its review of that case, and will continue to be applicable if either that court or a California Court of Appeal publishes a decision holding that a pre-dispute Jury Trial Waiver provision similar to that contained in Section 13.7(c) is invalid or
unenforceable. Delay in requesting appointment of a referee pending review of any such decision, or participation in litigation pending review, will not be deemed a waiver of this Section 13.8.
Other than (i) nonjudicial foreclosure of security interests in real or personal property, (ii) the appointment of a receiver or (iii) the exercise of other provisional remedies (any of which may be initiated pursuant to applicable law), any controversy, dispute or claim (each, a "Claim") between the parties arising out of or relating to this Security Agreement, will be resolved by a reference proceeding in California in accordance with the provisions of Section 638 et seq. of the California Code of Civil Procedure ("CCP"), or their successor sections, which shall constitute the exclusive remedy for the resolution of any Claim, including whether the Claim is subject to the reference proceeding. Except as otherwise provided herein or in the Loan Documents, venue for the reference proceeding will be in the Superior Court or
Federal District Court in the County or District where the real property, if any, is located or in a County or District where venue is otherwise appropriate under applicable law (the "Court").
The referee shall be a retired Judge or Justice selected by mutual written agreement of the parties. If the parties do not agree, the referee shall be selected by the Presiding
Judge of the Court (or his or her representative). A request for appointment of a referee may be heard on an ex parte or expedited basis, and the parties agree that irreparable harm would result if ex parte relief is not granted. The referee shall be appointed to sit with all the powers provided by law. Each party shall have one peremptory challenge pursuant to CCP § 170.6. Pending
appointment of the referee, the Court has power to issue temporary or provisional remedies.
The parties agree that time is of the essence in conducting the reference proceedings. Accordingly, the referee shall be requested to (i) set the matter for a status and trial- setting conference within fifteen (15) days after the date of selection of the referee, (ii) if
The referee may set or extend discovery deadlines or cutoffs for good cause,
including a party's failure to provide requested discovery for any reason whatsoever. Unless otherwise ordered, no party shall be entitled to "priority" in conducting discovery, depositions may be taken by either party upon seven (7) days written notice, and all other discovery shall be responded to within fifteen (15) days after service. All disputes relating to discovery which cannot be resolved by the parties shall be submitted to the referee whose decision shall be final
Except as expressly set forth in this Security Agreement, the referee shall determine the manner in which the reference proceeding is conducted including the time and place of hearings, the order of presentation of evidence, and all other questions that arise with respect to the course of the reference proceeding. All proceedings and hearings conducted before the referee, except for trial, shall be conducted without a court reporter, except that when any party so requests, a court reporter will be used at any hearing conducted before the referee,
and the referee will be provided a courtesy copy of the transcript. The party making such a request shall have the obligation to arrange for and pay the court reporter. Subject to the
referee's power to award costs to the prevailing party, the parties will equally share the cost of the referee and the court reporter at trial.
The referee shall be required to determine all issues in accordance with existing case law and the statutory laws of the State of California. The rules of evidence applicable to proceedings at law in the State of California will be applicable to the reference
proceeding. The referee shall be empowered to enter equitable as well as legal relief, provide all temporary or provisional remedies, enter equitable orders that will be binding on the parties and rule on any motion which would be authorized in a trial, including without limitation motions for summary judgment or summary adjudication. The referee shall issue a decision at the close of the reference proceeding which disposes of all claims of the parties that are the subject of the reference. The referee's decision shall be entered by the Court as a judgment or an order in the same manner as if the action had been tried by the Court. The parties reserve the right to appeal from the final judgment or order or from any appealable decision or order entered by the referee.
The parties reserve the right to findings of fact, conclusions of laws, a written statement of decision, and the right to move for a new trial or a different judgment, which new trial, if
granted, is also to be a reference proceeding under this provision.
If the enabling legislation which provides for appointment of a referee is
repealed (and no successor statute is enacted), any dispute between the parties that would
otherwise be determined by reference procedure will be resolved and determined by arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by a retired judge or Justice, in accordance with the California
Arbitration Act § 1280 through § 1294.2 of the CCP as amended from time to time. The limitations with respect to discovery set forth above shall apply to any such arbitration
HEIR MUTUAL BENEFIT AGREES THAT THIS REFERENCE PROVISION WILL
APPLY TO ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM WHICH ARISES OUT OF OR IS RELATED TO THIS SECURITY AGREEMENT.
13.9 Mediation. If a dispute shall arise between the parties regarding the interpretation or enforcement of this Security Agreement, each agrees to first mediate the dispute with the assistance of a trained and experienced mediator to be selected by mutual agreement of the parties. If the parties cannot agree on a mediator, either party may apply to Judicate West in San Francisco, California for the appointment of a mediator. The parties shall engage in at least eight (8) hours of good faith mediation pursuant to the then applicable rules of Judicate West. In the event that the dispute cannot be resolved by mediation, either party shall be free to initiate whatever litigation such party deems appropriate in the Superior Court of California for the of
County of San Francisco or the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California located in San Francisco, California. The fees and costs of the mediator shall be borne equally by the parties unless they agree otherwise as part of the mediation process.
13.10 No Novation. Debtor and Secured Party each hereby agree that effective upon the execution and delivery of this Security Agreement by Debtor, this Security Agreement shall amend, restate and supersede in its entirety the Prior Security Agreement. Nothing herein
contained shall be construed as a substitution or novation of the obligations of Debtor
outstanding under the Prior Security Agreement or instruments securing the same, which obligations shall remain in full force and effect, except to the extent that the terms thereof are modified hereby or by instruments executed concurrently herewith. Nothing expressed or implied in this Security Agreement shall be construed as a release or other discharge of Debtor from any of its obligations or liabilities under the Prior Security Agreement or any of the other loan documents executed in connection therewith. Debtor hereby (i) confirms and agrees that each Loan Document to which it is a party is, and shall continue to be, in full force and effect and is hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects except that on and after the date hereof all references in any such Loan Document to "the Security Agreement", "thereto", "thereof', "thereunder" or words of like import referring to the Prior Security Agreement shall mean the Prior Security Agreement as amended and restated by this Security Agreement; and (ii) confirms and agrees that to the extent that the Prior Security Agreement or any loan document executed in connection therewith purports to assign or pledge to Secured Party, a security interest in or lien on, any collateral as security for the Obligations of Debtor from time to time existing in respect of the Prior Security Agreement, such pledge, assignment or grant of the security interest or lien is hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects and shall remain effective as of the first date it
became effective. [remainder of this page intentionally left blank]
