Classification of issues present

APPLICATION OF CISG: No. This is an example of a case in which the CISG applied but the court did not apply the CISG. The contract was concluded in 1989. The CISG had entered into force in France in 1988 and in Germany in 1991. The court concluded that French law applied. The court should therefore have applied the CISG through Article 1(1)(b).
