RE: Jurisdiction and Choice of Law.

I have found the best solution, when there is an intractable conflict of
jurisdiction, is to come to agreement with the Vendor to remain silent on
the issue. I have found vendors to be agreeable to that solution. We
strike out the provision in both sets of terms & conditions. Our first
effort is to use California law, since we're an agency of the City &
County, and very often that is not a problem. But when the Vendor cannot
make that change, and we absolutely want to acquire the resource, we can
usually get the silence approved. Sybil Boutilier
