In 2011, U.S. courts analyzed the scope, formation, and remedies provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”). Although the number of cases arising under the CISG is relatively small compared with those under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.), the cases discussed in this survey remind us that U.S. courts are comfortable in applying the CISG. A comprehensive survey setting forth legal developments in the United States during the past nine years involving the CISG follows the Uniform Commercial Code Survey in this issue of The Business Lawyer. That survey illustrates that the comfort of the U.S. courts with the CISG in the last calendar year was no aberration.
