On secured credit of $222,173, their company Diamond Timber, Inc. leased a log loader machine from Cascade Loggers Supply, Inc. in June of 1979, which then assigned the contract to Leasing Service Corp. When fifteen months later Don and Lu refused to continue payments because the machine did not work, Leasing Service Corp. repossessed the logger and conducted a public foreclosure sale under the former Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code.
