- Terms: Idaho Power sends inquiry to Westinghouse for the price of regulator. Westinghouse sends back their quote with terms on forms (with limitation language). Idaho Power sends a purchase order to Westinghouse with their terms (no limited liability) on the forms.
- Breach: Westinghouse delivers regulators; regulators cause a fire. The Westinghouse price quote contains liability limitations so they claim no liability.
- Issue: whose terms govern the agreement?
- Holding: common law rules.
- Mirror image rule: Ps request an invitation for an offer, Ds quote the original offer, Ps purchase order does not mirror the offer so cannot be acceptance, it is a counteroffer. D ships equipment which constitutes acceptance of Ps counteroffer.
- Last shot rule: the last document prior to performance is what governs the terms of the agreement.
