Case Synopsis

Appeal of the district court’s order excluding the use of extrinsic evidence under the statute of frauds. The Court held that the statute of frauds does not apply to a writing that is subsequently lost or destroyed, and oral evidence is admissible to prove the existence and terms of that lost or destroyed writing. The Court reversed and remanded the lower court’s decision for further proceedings.
