Tompkins v. 23andMe, Inc., 14-16405

In an arbitration action, arising from a class action filed after defendant claimed that its online genetic testing service could help customers manage health risks and prevent or mitigate genetic diseases, the district court's order to compel arbitration is affirmed where the arbitration clause's provisions for arbitration costs; forum selection clause designating San Francisco, California as the forum of arbitration proceedings; and exclusion of intellectual property claims from mandatory arbitration did not render the provision unconscionable under California law or unenforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act.
