In an action for tortious interference with, and inducement to breach, agreements regarding the development of a gasification technology, grant of defendant's motion to compel arbitration is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in its reliance on a concerted misconduct theory of alternative estoppel to grant defendant nonsignatory's motion to compel arbitration; and 2) in light of the interpretive preference for arbitration, plaintiff's tort claims were "disputes arising under" the agreements and were therefore within the scope of the broad arbitration clause.
