indemnified party may, at its own cost, participate in such investigation, trial
and  defense  of  such  lawsuit or action and any appeal arising therefrom.  The
indemnifying  party  shall  not,  without  the  prior  written  consent  of  the
indemnified  party,  effect any settlement of any proceeding in respect of which
any  indemnified party is a party and indemnity has been sought hereunder unless
such  settlement  of  a  claim,  investigation,  suit,  or other proceeding only
involves  a  remedy  for  the  payment  of  money  by the indemnifying party and
includes  an  unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability
on  claims  that  are  the  subject  matter  of  such  proceeding.

     8.4     Default  of Indemnification Obligation.  If an entity or individual
             --------------------------------------
having  an  indemnification,  defense  and  hold  harmless  obligation, as above
provided,  shall  fail  to assume such obligation, then the party or entities or
both,  as  the  case  may  be,  to  whom  such indemnification, defense and hold
harmless  obligation  is  due  shall  have the right, but not the obligation, to
assume and maintain such defense (including reasonable counsel fees and costs of
any  suit  related  thereto)  and  to make any settlement or pay any judgment or
verdict  as  the  individual  or  entities deem necessary or appropriate in such
individual's or entities' absolute sole discretion and to charge the cost of any
such  settlement,  payment,  expense  and costs, including reasonable attorneys'
fees,  to  the  entity  or  individual  that  had the obligation to provide such
indemnification,  defense and hold harmless obligation and same shall constitute
an additional obligation of the entity or of the individual or both, as the case
may  be.
