The statute of Frauds- Write a hypothetical facts scenario describing specific details of a valid enforceable electronic contract between GC and Windows Bright a small window washing business in  Missouri

instructions

To respond to the GC groups questions and   concerns, create facts scenarios and explanations to discuss with the GC   owners.

1.  The statute of Frauds – “writing”   requirement

Background:  Generally,   contracts for the sale of goods must be in writing, and the writing must be   signed by the parties to the agreement,  and the parties must be   sufficiently identified.  GC will be selling goods via the internet; the   owners are wondering whether these electronic contracts are valid and   enforceable.

Write a hypothetical facts scenario describing specific details of a valid enforceable electronic contract between GC and Windows Bright a small window washing business in  Missouri.  The contract is for the sale of 3 cases of Shiny Lite window   cleaning solution, at $200 per case, to Windows Bright, and sold by GC via   the internet.  

The scenario must explain how/why the  Statute of Frauds requirement that contracts for sale of goods over $500 be   in writing can be satisfied electronically.  

2.  Discharge of a contract

Background:  There are several   reasons for which a contract can be discharged before performance under the   agreement.    Under common law and the UCC (Uniform Commercial   Code, Section 2-615), a contract may possibly be discharged because of   commercial impracticability when performance could be completed only with   extreme difficulty, or at unreasonable expense, or would have little   practical value.  Courts are relatively flexible on this matter.

Write a hypothetical facts scenario   describing specific details of a contract between GC and a Barton Industries   (a fictitious company), for which GC was to provide roof and floor cleaning   in Barton’s large corporate office building each month for 3 months.    Write the scenario facts so that GC could reasonably argue that GC should be   discharged from performing on the ground of commercial   impracticability. 

The scenario must explain how/why the   contract might be discharged for commercial impracticability. 

3.  Satisfaction of performance

Background:  Some businesses   advertise, “Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back”.   A   performance satisfaction clause in a contract can mean that one party does   not have to pay or perform his or her duties under the contract unless fully   satisfied with the other party’s performance.  Courts typically apply an   objective, reasonable standard to resolve disputes arising from contracts   with satisfaction clauses.

Would you advise GC to include a   satisfaction clause on their contracts with cleaning clients?  Why or   why not?  Fully explain and support conclusions.
