About Landmark Cases in the Law of Restitution
If you belong to such an institution, please login or read more about How to Order. Landmark Cases in the Law of Contract offers twelve original essays by leading contract scholars. As with the essays in the companion volume, Landmark Cases in the Law of Restitution Hart, each essay takes as its focus a particular leading case, and analyses that case in its historical or theoretical context. The cases range from the early eighteenth- to the late twentieth-centuries, and deal with an array of contractual doctrines. Some of the essays call for their case to be stripped of its landmark status, whilst others argue that it has more to offer than we have previously appreciated.
The particular historical context of these landmark cases, as revealed by the authors, often shows that our current assumptions about the case and what it stands for are either mistaken, or require radical modification.

However, the court of appeal and the Federal Supreme Court disagreed and ruled that the purchaser may not invoke a fundamental error that relates to characteristics and qualities of the purchased goods if the Convention applies.
Article 4 a of the Convention provides that the Convention does not deal with the validity of the contract or any contractual provision except as otherwise expressly provided in the Convention.

In particular, the Convention only provides for the cancellation of an agreement as a last resort. That is because the consequences of a cancellation, in particular the triggered return shipment, is particularly harmful in international trade relationships that often include long-distance transports of goods.
