Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
1. The district court erred in dismissing Smith Enterprises' complaint.
2. The district court erred in rendering judgment in favor of counterclaimant, In-Touch Phone Cards, Inc., in the amount of $9,520.23, plus interest and costs.
3. The district court erred in failing to grant Smith Enterprises' relief from the judgment and/or new trial.

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:

2: The District Court properly found the relationship between the parties to be a series of individual contracts for sale.
3: The District Court properly found that In-Touch did not tortiously interfere with Smith's contracts with Stop-N-Go and Cenex or Smith's business relationships.
