Ben Davis sent this link out to the contracts professors list serve. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39381416/. The case involves a home sold twice . . . apparently by mistake: once as a short sale and then at foreclosure days later.

I am getting ready to start methods of avoidance in the next couple of weeks and will be sure to mention this one to the class.
