For each scenario, answer the questions. Make sure to support each answer with at least one reference to the required background materials. Suppose you are down at the marina cleaning your pleasure cruising boat. The captain of the boat next door has a friend on board who cant stop complimenting your boat. The captains friend offers to pay you $75,000 for your boat if he can take possession this week. Youve had the boat for a while, and you yourself bought it used. Recently when you were considering an upgrade, a dealer offered you $50,000 in trade-in value on your boat. You decide to accept the next-door captains friends $75,000 offer. The two of you go down to his lawyers office and the two of you sign a contract agreeing that you will hand over your boat and the captains friend will wire $75,000 to your bank account within one business day. As the two of you agreed in the contract, the next day you move the boat into the designated slip (parking place) and you hand over the keys to the harbor master to be picked up by the new owner. However, a week goes by and you still do not have your money. You learn that the harbor master still has the keys. You try to track the buyer down, but you find out from the next-door captain that he, the captain, was surprised to learn his friend is currently in a rehab facility for serious drug addiction and mental exhaustion. Given that you have a written contract, do you think you would be able to enforce the contract and would be able to get the $75,000 in this situation? Suppose you are a chicken farmer and you sign an agreement with a local chicken rotisserie restaurant owner to sell a large quantity of organic chickens to him every month. The written contract states that you will sell him good quality organic chickens. However, when you send the first shipment, the grocer comes back and says they are not high quality enough and he will not pay you. You reply that your chickens meet United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines for being Grade A which is the highest grade you can receive, and that they are certified to meet USDA organic standards. The restaurateur claims your chickens are not of the quality he had in mind, the contract does not say anything about the USDA, and his willingness to pay depends only on his own ideas about what is good quality. What do you think should have been added to the contract to avoid this kind of dispute? Will you be able to get paid for your chickens if you file a lawsuit seeking to force the restaurateur to pay? You enjoy going to the horse-racing track on Sundays and have been doing so for the past 10 years. Youve gotten to know some of the other regulars there. One Sunday you are complaining to a friend there that youd like to place a bet on a specific horse to win, but the track is offering such low odds. Your friend laughs at your choice and offers to take a $100 bet himself and give you much better odds. You ask him to repeat his offer and you record a video on your cell phone of him making the offer. You also record your acceptance. Your horse wins. You think your friend owes you $500, but he doesnt pay you the following Sunday or even mention the bet or race. If you file a lawsuit, will you be able to get the court to enforce your wager and make your friend pay you? You own a plant nursery and landscaping business. You have always hated business paperwork and do not like written contracts, so you usually use oral agreements. One agreement you have is to sell someone a large palm tree for $850. Another agreement is to provide two years’ worth of monthly lawn mowing at a customers home in exchange for an immediate payment of $1,800. Finally, you have an oral agreement to sell an exotic houseplant to one of your customers for $400 to be delivered by the end of this month, delivery included. Which of these oral contracts (if any) will be enforceable in court, and which ones (if any) will not be enforceable? Explain your reasoning. You own a small computer consulting business and have a close friend who runs a pawn shop. He wants to use your services for what is a $10,000 project. However, your friend is adamant about not signing a contract, and says, We are friends! No need to get lawyers involved; we trust each other. Being familiar with contract law, you know that since you are providing a service, rather than selling physical goods, an oral contract will be valid for amounts over $500. However, you know that your friend gets busy at work and might forget the exact terms of your oral agreement. What step or steps might you take to protect yourself from a future disagreement without a formal written contract?
