Annemarie Morgan v. Sanford Brown Institute (A-31-1

 Annemarie Morgan v. Sanford Brown Institute (A-31-14; 075074) 

The arbitration provision and purported delegation clause in the enrollment agreement fail to comply with the requirements of First Options of Chi., Inc. v. Kaplan, 514 U.S. 938 (1995), and Atalese v. U.S. Legal Servs. Grp., 219 N.J. 430 (2014), cert. denied, 135 S. Ct. 2804 (2015). They also fail to satisfy the elements necessary for the formation of a contract. Consequently, whether the parties agreed to arbitrate their dispute is an issue for determination by the court. The Court holds that the arbitration and delegation provisions of the agreement are unenforceable.
