INTERPRETING ARBS UNDER STATE LAW GOVERNING CONTRACTS

Ordinary state law principles that govern contract formation apply to the determination of whether the parties have a valid arbitration agreement. Fleetwood Enters., Inc. v. Gaskamp, 280 F.3d 1069, 1073 (5th Cir.2002). In determining whether a dispute falls within the scope of the arbitration agreement, ambiguities are resolved in favor of arbitration, but this does not apply to determining whether a valid arbitration agreement exists.
