Highlight

A provision in a written contract for the sale of goods precluding oral modification or rescission of the parties' agreement is valid and enforceable.
The Unlawful Sales or Advertising Practices Act prohibits deceptive and fraudulent conduct by the seller of merchandise; it does not apply to, or create a cause of action against, a purchaser of merchandise.
When leave to amend the complaint is sought after discovery has closed and the opposing party has made a motion for summary judgment, the proposed amendment must be not only theoretically viable but also solidly grounded in the record, and the amendment is classified as futile unless its allegations are supported by substantial evidence.
