Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

"The Uniform Commercial Code, commonly known as the U.C.C., is a general commercial statute that controls areas of contract law such as the sale of goods and leases of personal property. The code was drafted to make commercial law the same across the country, and it has been adopted in every state except Louisiana, which is still under the influence of the French civil law." -From, Law 101" By: Jay M. Feinman

[SIDEBAR: I wonder how Louisiana being exempt from the U.C.C. affects the "clean up" that is going on in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.]
