Shannon Sterling GBUS 204 Assignment #3 1. The Little Steel Company is a small steel fabricator that makes steel parts for various metal machine shops. When Little receives an order from a client, it must locate and purchase 10 tons of a certain grade of steel to complete the order. Little sends an e-mail message to West Coast Steel Company inquiring into the availability of 10 tons of the described grade of steel. West Coast replies by e-mail that it has available the required 10 tons of steel and quotes $450 per ton. Little replies by e-mail that it will purchase the 10 tons of described steel at the quoted price. West Coast sends a fax to Little, to wit: "10 tons of steel on its way, signed West Coast." There is no date set forth in the e-mails or fax for delivery. When the steel arrives, Little rejects shipment, claiming the steel was shipped too late. When West Coast sues Little for breach of contract, Little also raises the defense of the Statute of Frauds. Who wins, and why?
