On a number of issues arising under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C. or Code), the courts have reached conflicting results, yet the number of jurisdictions passing on each such issue remains small. There is still time, then, for discussion of proper solutions of many of such Code issues. Of interest is the continuing judicial struggle with the intermesh of the Code's warranty provisions, the strict liability provisions of the Restatement Second of Torts, section 402A, and the burgeoning new crop of products liability statutes. The trend toward nuclear and computer problems is reflected in cases involving construction of nuclear plants, "heavy water" operations, and sales or leases of computers. The high interest rates of recent years have also resulted in litigation. All of the foregoing is reflected in the decisions covered by this review.
