An ode to Cricket Alley Corp. v. Data Terminal Systems (from a poet in my Contracts II class):
DTS sold registers to Cricket’s
To automate bookkeeping wickets.
The shop owner said, “Dang!
These won’t talk to my Wang.
We’re stuck with hand entered sales tickets.”
Cricket’s needs were expressed or implied.
On salesmen’s claims Cricket had relied.
Damage was foreseeable
And so we’re agreeable
Consequence relief can’t be denied.
