In a class action suit against a company that sells online programs offering discounts on goods and services, the Second Circuit affirmed the district court’s denial of defendant’s motion to compel arbitration. Defendants argued that they provided plaintiffs with notice about the arbitration provision through a hyperlink on a webpage plaintiffs would have seen before enrolling in defendants’ service and in an email sent to plaintiffs after enrollment. The court held that an unsolicited email from an online consumer business sent after enrollment does not put recipients on inquiry notice of its terms and that failure to cancel the membership does not, by itself, constitute assent. The court declined to decide the issue of whether the hyperlink on the enrollment screen provided notice of the arbitration provision because defendants failed to raise the issue in the district court. However, the court hinted that the hyperlink “might have created a substantial question as to whether the [arbitration] provision was part of a contract between the parties.” , No. 11-1311 (2d Cir. Sept. 7, 2012).
