Thompson v. Libby
Minnesota Supreme Court
26 N.W. 1 (1885)
Thompson (plaintiff) agreed to sell Libby (defendant) logs that he owned. The agreement was thereafter memorialized by a written contract. The written contract did not provide a warranty, including a warranty regarding the quality of the logs. Thompson filed suit and the matter went to trial. The trial court permitted Libby to introduce testimony for the purpose of proving a verbal warranty.
