Ewell, 174 So.2d 78, 80 (Fla. 2d DCA 1965). The Statute of Frauds, however, is a peculiar doctrine of contract law as there are a few exceptions that make an otherwise unenforceable oral agreement enforceable. This bLAWg focuses on two such exceptions: part performance (or partial performance) and full performance of an oral agreement.
