GARTHON BUSINESS INC. et al., Respondents, v. Kirill Ace STEIN et al., Appellants.
The order of the Appellate Division, insofar as appealed from, should be reversed, with costs, and the motions to compel arbitration granted.
Under the circumstances of this case, including the terms of the parties' final agreements, which incorporated the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration, the issue of whether the dispute is arbitrable should be resolved by the arbitrator (see Matter of Monarch Consulting, Inc. v. National Union Fire Ins. Co. of Pittsburgh, PA, 26 NY3d 659, 676–677 ; Matter of Nationwide Gen. Ins. Co. v. Investors Ins. Co. of Am., 37 N.Y.2d 91, 95  ).
Order, insofar as appealed from, reversed, with costs, and motions to compel arbitration granted, in a memorandum.
