Scenario

Jill and Will are independent contractors. They have completed technology projects for people and businesses. They have not sold parts, because they did not want to have to collect sales tax or deal with the paperwork. In the past, their carefully selected customers have been great. Collection of bills has not been difficult. They preferred not to use written bids or contracts.

Jill and Will have changed their minds, due to customer needs. They have sought advice from your supervising attorney, Mary. They have even decided that they will sell some bigger ticket items.

Jill and Will understand, from their own research, contracts where they sell over $500 of goods will require a writing, but they want more up-to-date and accurate information. Mary, the attorney, wants you to do a survey of recent cases and articles on the statute of frauds, to make sure that she has an up-to-date basis for legal advice.
