Should we not be able to agree on a mediator, I agree that the Senior District Judge in Bexar County, Texas will appoint a mediator to mediate the dispute. I also agree that venue for any dispute, or cause of action, arising by and between the parties, whether arising out of this agreement or otherwise, can only be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Bexar County, Texas, exclusively, and exclusive of any provisions relating to conflict of laws.
