This Article is a survey of the highlights of cases from 2013 decided under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Particular Article 2 highlights include the mixed goods case of Whitecap Investment Corp. v. Putnam Lumber & Export Co., a case involving multiple transactions for treated lumber where the court found that application of the “predominant purpose” test to determine whether Article 2, or common law, applies to disputes is dependent upon whether the parties have an overriding agreement for the transactions or whether the court evaluates each individual transaction on its own. The Sales Survey also took up the merchants must read their mail case of Brooks Peanut Co., Inc. v. Great Southern Peanut, LLC., a case involving peanut brokers and communications among the parties and their brokers.
