Where Agreement is Fraudulently Induced, Its Arbitration Clause Cannot be Enforced

This case involved an e-mail advertisement sent to an unwitting individual, enticing her to participate in a 'personality test', but in fact it was a prank. The advertisement participation agreement contained an arbitration clause which the participant had to agree to. Held: Since the entire agreement was fraud in inducement, the arbitration clause could not be enforced.
