(g) Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement is to be resolved by arbitration. The arbitration is to be administered by the American Arbitration Association and is to be conducted in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration is to be held before a panel of three arbitrators, each of whom must be independent of the parties. No later than 15 days after the arbitration begins, each party shall select an arbitrator and request the two selected arbitrators to select a third neutral arbitrator. If the two arbitrators fail to select a third on or before the 10th day after the second arbitrator was selected, either party is entitled to request the American Arbitration Association to appoint the third neutral arbitrator in accordance with its rules. Before beginning the hearings, each arbitrator must provide an oath or undertaking of impartiality. Either party may seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party. By doing so, that party does not waive any right or remedy under this Agreement. The interim or provisional relief is to remain in effect until the arbitration award is rendered or the controversy is resolved. The arbitrators are to have no authority to award punitive damages or other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages, and may not, in any event, make any ruling, finding or award that does not conform to the provisions of this Agreement. Any arbitration proceeding under this Agreement must be commenced no later than two years after the controversy or claim arose. Failure to commence in a timely arbitration proceeding constitutes both an absolute bar to the commencement of an arbitration proceeding with respect to the controversy or claim, and a waiver of the controversy or claim. The arbitrators are to interpret all controversies and claims arising under or relating to this Agreement in accordance with the laws set forth in Section 9(a). The arbitration is to be conducted in Harris County, Texas. Each party shall submit to any court of competent jurisdiction for purposes of the enforcement of any award, order or judgment. Any award, order or judgment pursuant to arbitration is final and may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.
