Cameron Hartman 11/17/09 Seat #59 WILSON v. SCAMPOLI Facts: The Plaintiff, Wilson, purchased a television from the Defendant, Scampoli, on November  4 th , 1965, which was evidenced by a sales receipt that included a 90 day warranty. The set was  delivered two days later, but the television’s picture had a red tinge to it. Scampoli’s delivery  man noted that it was not his job to do services on the television, but that he would notify a  service representative. After the service representative failed to fix the television, he issued a  memorandum noting that the television “needs shop work” and needed to take the television to  his shop. The Plaintiff refused to allow the service representative to take the television, as she  wanted a new one, so she demanded the return of the purchase price (while retaining the set).    History: The trial court ruled in favor of the Plaintiff, Wilson.
