44 PHIL 675



Fernandez  Hermanos  placed  an  order  with  the  products  company  for  the manufacturing of a chain given a set of specifications.  The chain was duly prepared  and  delivered.    A  draft  was  drawn  by  the  company  and  was accepted  by  Fernandez  Hermanos.    Thereafter,  the  draft  was  negotiated with  Fossum  who  demanded payment  on  the  instrument  but  was  refused by  Fernandez  on  alleged  failure  of  the  chain  delivered  to  satisfy  the specifications given.


It devolved around Fernandez Hermanos to allege and prove its claim that which was delivered and received didn't comply with the specifications and didn't answer the purposes for which it was intended.  It alleged that the chain  didn't  meet  the  specifications  given  by  the  contract.    Nonetheless, there was failure to identify the so-called defects of the chain.  It was uponFernandez Hermanos to show that indeed the chain was defective.  But as the trial court found out, there was a failure of proof.
