Question

The Little Steel Company is a small steel fabricator that makes steel parts for various metal machine shop clients. When Little Steel Company receives an order from a client, it must locate and purchase 10 tons of a certain grade of steel to complete the order. The Little Steel Company sends an e- mail message to West Coast Steel Company, a large steel company, inquiring about the availability of 10 tons of the described grade of steel. The West Coast Steel Company replies by e- mail that it has available the required 10 tons of steel and quotes $ 450 per ton. The Little Steel Company’s purchasing agent replies by e- mail that the Little Steel Company will purchase the 10 tons of described steel at the quoted price of $ 450 per ton. The e- mails are signed electronically by the Little Steel Company’s purchasing agent and the selling agent of the West Coast Steel Company. When the steel arrives at the Little Steel Company’s plant, the Little Steel Company rejects the shipment, claiming the defense of the Statute of Frauds. The West Coast Steel Company sues the Little Steel Company for damages. Who wins?
