This is an appeal from Judge Leisure's denial of a petition to stay arbitration. We affirm for the reasons set forth in his opinion. Application of Carl Philips v. Newell Co., No. 96 CIV. 9153, 1997 WL 181191 (S.D.N.Y. April 15, 1997). The contentions raised by the appellant for the first time on appeal are without merit.
