Another Contracts Limerick:

An ode to Cricket Alley Corp. v. Data Terminal Systems (from a poet in my Contracts II class):

Facts:

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.”

Holding:

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.
