rejection/acceptance via fax
Oct 29th, 2004 at 10:55pm
 
Can an offeree overtake a posted rejection with a faxed acceptance of the offer?   There doesnt seem to be any case law on this matter...any ideas or suggestions on where to start researching?

thanks!  ???

am not totally sure about this but it's the postal ACCEPTANCE rule, so one would think that if it was a posted rejection then yeah a faxed acceptance would be ok.  You should look at cases regarding instantaneous communication.  I think the main authority is Brinkinbon v Stahag Stahl gmbH [1983] 2 AC 34 good luck!
