8. Governing Law, Venue, Actions. The agreement between Seller and Buyer shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law rules or provisions (whether of the State of Ohio or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Ohio. Each of Seller and Buyer agrees to bring any action arising out of or related to this agreement in a state or federal court in the State of Ohio. Each of Seller and Buyer waives any defense of inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any action so brought. If any provision of the Orbit Terms, or the agreement between Seller and Buyer, is declared unlawful or invalid, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless continue in full force and effect. Should either Seller or Buyer initiate litigation with respect to the agreement between them, the prevailing party in any such proceeding shall be entitled to receive from the other party all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by the prevailing party in connection with such proceeding.
