Court Decisions
  • United States v. Wimbledon Grain Company et al., Civil No, A3-02-46, p. 2 (D.N.D. 2002), Chief Judge Rodney S. Webb held “. . . for priority purposes sellers with unsigned contracts. . . should be treated in the same manner as those . . . with storage receipts.”
  • “. . . The statute provides that, “the contract must be signed by both parties. . .” ID. From the language of NDCC 60-02-19.1, the absence of a signature by both of the parties to the contract precludes it from otherwise constituting a credit-sale contract. The statutory language requires that a credit-sale contract be manifested by not only written form but by the signature of both parties. To conclude otherwise requires this Court to disregard what the legislature set out as the requirements to create an enforceable credit-sale contract. So, any claim manifested by a document not signed by both parties can never constitute a credit-sale contract regardless of the language in the unsigned document.” (Judge Geiger’s 8/31/12, Findings of Fact, Conclusion of Law, and Order, at pg. 6, at 3-11, Civil No. 50-2011-CV-29, PSC v. Grabanski Grain LLC (2012))
