STATUTE OF FRAUDS:
The following must be evidenced by a writing:
--> executor or administrator promises to personally pay estate debts
--> collateral promise to pay the debt of another (surety), unless the main purpose or leading object of the promisor is to serve a pecuniary interest of his own
--> promises in consideration of marriage
--> interest in land -- sales, leases for more than one year, easements of more than one year, fixtures, minerals or the like, or structures if they are to be severed by the buyer -- if the subject matter is growing crops, timber to be cut, or other things attached to realty capable of severance without material harm to the realty it is a contract for the sale of goods
--> a promise that, by its terms, cannot be performed within one year (part performance does not satisfy in this case) -- date runs from date of the agreement -- if the contract allows both parties the right to terminate within one year, the minority view is that it is not subject to the statute
--> goods priced at $500 or more, but not if (1) the goods are specially manufactured for buyer and not suitable to others in the ordinary course of business, where seller has made substantial beginning in their manufacture or committments for their purchase before repudiation is recieved; (2) if the party against whom enforcement is sought admits in pleadings, testimony, or otherwise in court that the contract for sale was made, but contract will not be enforced beyond quantity of goods admitted; or (3) goods are either received and accepted or paid for, but not beyond the quatity accepted. If the contract has been modified, the statute of frauds applies post-mod, so applies if contract as modified is for more than $500 worth of goods.
