    Court granted defendants’ motion to compel arbitration finding that: (1) plaintiff assented to the arbitration agreement when making a purchase on defendants’ website and (2) the parties’ incorporation of the JAMS Rules indicated clear and unmistakable evidence that the parties intended to arbitrate the issue of arbitrability.

    Court of appeals affirmed district court judgment granting a motion to compel arbitration and dismiss the case.  Court found that plaintiff was bound to the arbitration agreement when he was on inquiry notice of the agreement by making various purchases.  Court found that plaintiff’s challenge of the validity of the contract was not a threshold issue of arbitrability, and thus should be considered by the arbitrator in the first instance.
