Limerick of the Week

Sherrodd, Inc. v. Morrison-Knudsen is a great teaching case.  It never ceases to outrage at least some students and thus leads to a very fruitful discussion of the pitfalls of the parol evidence rule.  In addition, it shows that a formal approach to contracts law is still with us, as the following Limerick illustates:

Sherrodd, Inc. v. Morrison-Knudsen

Behold, parol's bitter fruit:
Sherrodd's claim was deemed moot!
If he'd only known,
The great Corbin would groan
To see Williston's rule win repute.
