This assignment should be the product of careful thought and more than one draft. Please remember that when providing an answer to the specific questions posed, it is not enough to give the correct answer unless you back up that answer with a legal argument that includes the following:

  1. A brief restatement of the legal question posed—usually a sentence or two that focus on the specific legal issue in this case, without reference to extraneous facts or information.
  2. A statement of the applicable law or rule that should be applied to the facts in this case. This will be taken from the text, and will not consist of a personal opinion or ethical reaction, but rather be a statement (usually only one or two sentences) that summarizes the rule of law that you will apply to come to a correct answer. You should not restate the law in its entirety, but instead summarize the appropriate law into a short explanation of the ruling principle in this case.
  3. Finally, a clear statement that explains how you applied the applicable law to these facts to reach a specific conclusion. This will be usually be a few sentences culminating in an answer to the specific question posed in the text. This portion of your answer should demonstrate original thinking and reasoning, and result in a definite conclusion.

All three elements are really needed for a complete answer and your entire answer should probably require, but not be longer than 5 or 6 sentences. Remember that a “gut” feeling, or an answer that tells me what you think is “right” is not enough in a course that emphasizes the accuracy of application and the importance of making a persuasive argument that explains that application. Only use the attached pdf textbook as a source. Twomey, D. P., Jennings, M., & Greene, S. M. (2017). Business law principles for today’s commercial environment (5th Edition). Cengage Learning. All in-text citations must include the page numbers. Example of exactly what the finished product should look like, is attached in the “Example Business Law” Word document. To simplify things, I pasted each question from each set of chapters below.

7. Siddle purchased a quantity of fireworks from Red

Devil Fireworks Co. The sale was illegal, however,

because Siddle did not have a license to make the

purchase, which the seller knew because it had been

so informed by the attorney general of the state.

Siddle did not pay for the fireworks, and Red Devil

sued him. He defended on the ground that the

contract could not be enforced because it was illegal.

Was the defense valid? [Red Devil Fireworks Co. v.

Siddle, 648 P.2d 468 (Wash. App.)]

13. The English publisher of a book called Cambridge

gave a New York publisher permission to sell that

book any place in the world except in England. The

New York publisher made several bulk sales of the

book to buyers who sold the book throughout the

world, including England. The English publisher sued

the New York publisher and its customers for breach

of the restriction prohibiting sales in England. Decide.

2. Martin made an oral contract with Cresheim Garage

to work as its manager for two years. Cresheim

wrote Martin a letter stating that the oral contract

had been made and setting forth all of its terms.

Cresheim later refused to recognize the contract.

Martin sued Cresheim for breach of the contract and

offered Cresheim’s letter in evidence as proof of the

contract. Cresheim claimed that the oral contract was

not binding because the contract was not in writing

and the letter referring to the contract was not a

contract but only a letter. Was the contract binding?

10. A contract made for the sale of a farm stated that the

buyer’s deposit would be returned “if for any reason

the farm cannot be sold.” The seller later stated that

she had changed her mind and would not sell, and

she offered to return the deposit. The buyer refused

to take the deposit back and brought suit to enforce

the contract. The seller contended that the “any

reason” provision extended to anything, including

the seller’s changing her mind. Was the buyer

entitled to recover? [Phillips v. Rogers, 200 S.E.2d

676 (W. Va.)]

Chapter 17

3. Lee contracts to paint Sally’s two-story house for

$2,500. Sally realizes that she will not have sufficient

money, so she transfers her rights under this agreement

to her neighbor Karen, who has a three-story

house. Karen notifies Lee that Sally’s contract has

been assigned to her and demands that Lee paint

Karen’s house for $2,500. Is Lee required to do so?

4. Assume that Lee agrees to the assignment of the

house-painting contract to Karen as stated in question

3. Thereafter, Lee fails to perform the contract

to paint Karen’s house. Karen sues Sally for damages.

Is Sally liable?

Chapter 18

4. Metalcrafters made a contract to design a new earthmoving

vehicle for Lamar Highway Construction Co.

Metalcrafters was depending on the genius of Samet,

the head of its research department, to design a new

product. Shortly after the contract was made between

Metalcrafters and Lamar, Samet was killed in an

automobile accident. Metalcrafters was not able to

design the product without Samet. Lamar sued.

6. Christopher Bloom received a medical school scholarship

created by the U.S. Department of Health and

Human Services to increase the number of doctors

serving rural areas. In return for this assistance,

Bloom agreed to practice four years in a region

identified as being underserved by medical professionals.

After some problem with his postgraduation

assignment, Bloom requested a repayment schedule

from the agency. Although no terms were offered,

Bloom tendered to the agency two checks totaling

$15,500 and marked “Final Payment.” Neither

check was cashed, and the government sued Bloom

for $480,000, the value of the assistance provided.

Bloom claimed that by tendering the checks to the

agency, his liability had been discharged by an accord

and satisfaction. Decide. [United States v. Bloom, 112

F.3d 200 (7th Cir.)]

Metalcrafters for damages for breach of the contract.

Metalcrafters claimed that the contract was discharged

by Samet’s death. Is it correct?

Chapter 19

2. Self-described “sports nut” Gary Baker signed up for

a three-year club-seat “package” that entitled him

and a companion to tickets for 41 Boston Bruin

hockey games and 41 Boston Celtic basketball games

at the New Boston Garden Corporation’s Fleet

Center for approximately $18,000 per year. After

one year, Baker stopped paying for the tickets

thinking that he would simply lose his $5,000 security

deposit. New Boston sued Baker for breach of

contract, seeking the balance due on the tickets of

$34,866. At trial, Baker argued to the jury that

although he had breached his contract, New Boston

had an obligation to mitigate damages, for example,

by treating his empty seats and those of others in the

same situation as “rush seats” shortly before game

time and selling them at a discount. New Boston

argued that just as a used luxury car cannot be

returned for a refund, a season ticket cannot be

canceled without consequences. Decide.

5. Protein Blenders, Inc., made a contract with

Gingerich to buy from him the shares of stock of a

small corporation. When the buyer refused to take and

pay for the stock, Gingerich sued for specific performance

of the contract on the ground that the value of

the stock was unknown and could not be readily

ascertained because it was not sold on the general market.

Was he entitled to specific performance? [Gingerich

v. Protein Blenders, Inc., 95 N.W.2d 522 (Iowa)]
