Survey Article


During the survey period there were no statutory changes in the law of agency in Georgia. Some new principles were enunciated by the courts, while established doctrines were followed in other instances.

In a case of first impression, Studebaker Corp. v. Nail, the Court of Appeals, where an automobile purchaser had sued the automobile manufacturer direct on an express warranty, said that where manufacturer's warranty of new automobile was delivered to dealer with automobile for purpose of delivery to buyer, an agency for that purpose existed and that the suit would lie. The court pointed out, however, that no suit on an implied warranty could be brought under the circumstances as there would be no privity of contract.
