    If there are unforeseen circumstances of such a nature that the Customer cannot reasonably and fairly expect performance by Sediaverde, the court may, at the request of either party, dissolve that contract in whole or in part.
  1. Lien
    Sediaverde is entitled to retain custody of all of Sediaverde’s items in its possession until the Customer has fulfilled all of its obligations to Sediaverde to which the items in question are directly or sufficiently related.
