Krehbiel v. Oklahoma

Does a referral sales plan violate state law when the client is not required to provide the names of additional purchasers as a condition of sale?


Krehbiel sold vacuum cleaners door-to-door. A clinet that purchased a vacuum cleaner had the option, but was not required, to submit the names of other potential customers to the sales person. If these referred people also bought a vacuum, the referrer made $25. The state sought an injunction, claiming that the promotional method violated state statutes.
