What role does the statute of frauds play in this contract?
Could BTT avoid this contract under the doctrine of mistake? Explain. Would either party have any other defenses that would allow the contract to be avoided?
Assuming, arguendo, that this e-mail does constitute an agreement, what consideration supports this agreement? Be sure to define consideration and apply the facts to that definition.
