In an action alleging illegal credit card penalties, the district court's order denying defendant's motion to stay and to compel arbitration is reversed where: 1) plaintiff had ample opportunity and time to opt out of the amendment to the parties' arbitration agreement before it took effect, but instead continued to use the card; 2) the agreement specifically provided an exception to binding arbitration in that plaintiff could file her claim individually in small claims court; and 3) the record did not support the district court's conclusion that the costs and fees associated with arbitration of plaintiff's individual claim made the agreement unconscionable as to her.
