24.13       Indemnification Procedures.


(a)     If any person who or which is entitled to seek indemnification under this Lease (an "Indemnified Party") obtains knowledge of, or receives notice of, any Claim against the person against whom or which such indemnification is being sought hereunder (an "Indemnifying Party"), the Indemnified Party will give such Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than ten (10) days after knowledge or notice of such Claim.  Such notice by the Indemnified Party will describe the Claim in reasonable detail, will include copies of all available material written evidence thereof and will indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the damages that have been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party.  The Indemnifying Party will have the right to participate in, or, by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party, to assume, the defense of any Claim at such Indemnifying Party's own expense and by such Indemnifying Party's own counsel (reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party), and the Indemnified Party will cooperate in good faith in such defense.

 

(b)     If, within ten (10) days after giving notice of a Claim to an Indemnifying Party pursuant to Section 24.13(a), an Indemnified Party receives written notice from the Indemnifying Party that the Indemnifying Party has elected to assume the defense of such Claim as provided in the last sentence of Section 24.13(a), the Indemnifying Party will not be liable for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense thereof; provided, however, that if the Indemnifying Party fails to take reasonable steps necessary to defend diligently such Claim within ten (10) days after receiving written notice from the Indemnified Party that the Indemnified Party believes the Indemnifying Party has failed to take such steps or if the Indemnifying Party has not undertaken fully to indemnify the Indemnified Party in respect of all damages relating to the matter, the Indemnified Party may assume its own defense, and the Indemnifying Party will be liable for all reasonable costs and expenses paid or incurred in connection therewith and the Indemnified Party may employ separate counsel, and the Indemnifying Party will bear the expenses of such separate counsel, if in the written opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party use of counsel of the Indemnifying Party's choice would be expected to give rise to a conflict of interest.  Without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, the Indemnifying Party will not enter into any settlement of any Claim that would lead to loss, liability or create any financial or other obligation on the part of any Indemnified Party for which such Indemnified Party is not entitled to indemnification

 

15



 

hereunder, or which provides for injunctive or other non-monetary relief applicable to any Indemnified Party, or does not include an unconditional release of all Indemnified Parties.


(c)     A failure to give timely notice or to include any specified information in any notice as provided in Sections 24.13(a) or (b) will not affect the rights or obligations of any party hereunder, except and only to the extent that, as a result of such failure, any party that was entitled to receive such notice was materially prejudiced as a result of such failure


(d)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Landlord and Tenant agree that, for the purposes of this section, in no event shall the actions or omissions of Landlord pursuant to the Manufacturing Services Agreement be deemed acts or omissions of Tenant.

 

24.14       Force Majeure.  The parties shall be excused from any failure to perform any obligation hereunder to the extent such failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event.  A Force Majeure Event shall operate to excuse a failure to perform an obligation hereunder only for the period of time during which the Force Majeure Event renders performance impossible or infeasible and only if the party asserting Force Majeure as an excuse for its failure to perform has provided written notice to the other party specifying the obligation to be excused and describing the events or conditions constituting the Force Majeure Event.  As used herein, "Force Majeure Event" means the occurrence of an event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the party failing to perform, including, without limitation, (a) explosions, fires, flood, earthquakes, catastrophic weather conditions, or other elements of nature or acts of God; (b) acts of war (declared or undeclared), acts of terrorism, insurrection, riots, civil disorders, rebellion or sabotage; (c) acts of federal, state, local or foreign governmental authorities or courts; (d) labor disputes, lockouts, strikes or other industrial action, whether direct or indirect and whether lawful or unlawful; (e) failures or fluctuations in electrical power or telecommunications service or equipment; and (f) delays caused by the other party's nonperformance hereunder.
