CASE ENTRY

Association of Equipment Manufacturers v. Burgum

North Dakota legislators attempt to retroactively change the terms of contracts between manufacturers and dealers of farm equipment.

So holds the Eighth Circuit (over a dissent), treating the reader to a history of the clause from 1789 to the New Deal and beyond.
