Notes of Decisions

Summary judg­ment was not appropriate where buyer refused to pay invoiced price in contract to fulfill buyer’s resin require­ments because issues of fact remained concerning contact performance, damages and set-off. Pacific Western Resin Co. v. Condux Pipe Systems, Inc., 771 F Supp 313 (1991)
