ITT v LTX. An Interactive Exploration of UCC Article 2
The goal of this program is to teach a substantial amount of Article 2 through the study of a single case. This exercise begins with a warranty case, ITT v. LTX. At any point in the program, however, you are free to explore any other part of the program. You may, for example, explore the issues in the case, which cover a large part of Article 2 and common law contracts. You can read what each opinion in the case says about the issue, explore treatises, go to the language of the UCC, or hear what the attorneys involved in the case have to say. Cap off your experience by taking a quiz on the issue which is similar to traditional CALI lessons.
Alternatively, you can learn more about the case by exploring such materials as the complaint, the pre-trial stipulations, and the trial testimony. Read treatises on case analysis or explore the elements of a claim for breach of contract and how the elements were proven in this case. The program contains such multimedia aspects as a videotape introduced in evidence at the trial, photographs, and statements by the attorneys.
This lesson is based on the law in effect at the time of this case was tried.
On completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:
1. Analyze how the elements of a claim for breach of contract are satisfied by facts.
2. Appraise the choices made by attorneys in litigating a contracts case, and how the different levels of courts respond to their arguments.
3. Demonstrate how the elements of a breach of warranty claim are satisfied.
4. Give examples of how the rules of UCC Article 2 and the common law of contracts are exemplified in contract warranty litigation.
