Legal Q&A | Communicating acceptance of a contract by email

QUESTION: I am having a friendly disagreement with a fellow broker about what the effective date of a contract would be if notice of acceptance is sent via email. Let's say a seller signs an offer and the listing agent scans and emails it to the buyer agent. The email, including the attachment, is sent to the buyer agent at 10 p.m. on Friday and the buyer agent opens and reads the email the following Saturday morning. He thinks the effective date is Saturday and I think it's Friday. Who's right?
