A 10-day, $24,000 catered Passover country-club retreat is more of a "service" than "goods" and is not subject to the statute of frauds, a New York judge has ruled. Therefore, a Brooklyn man who allegedly booked the getaway and didn't show could be made to pay the bill even though he never signed a contract. The court relied on "predominant purpose" analysis to determine whether the statue of frauds applied. The defense argued that Passover revolves around food, not service.
