Mr. Richards also testified that Mr. Kurtz “didn’t feel that the Association could, in fact, come up with that type of savings, but the negotiations still had to move forward.” Id. Mr. Richards, of course, was not competent to testify as to what Mr. Kurtz felt. In any event, as noted above, the record shows that the Association subsequently submitted a proposal projecting a savings to the District if its transportation services remained in-house.

Facts against: In the original negotiation agreement it was stipulated that no distribution contract existed unless it was in writing. Another possible fact that could weigh against Chou is that although the agreement was drafted it was not sent because if the misinterpretation that the email was in fact the contract. Question 3: Does the fact that the parties were communicating by e-mail have any impact on your analysis in Questions 1 and 2 (above)? Communication via email does have some impact to the question of contract but it is not enough to rule out a contract completely. The use of email may be binding if it does not state that the intent is to only negotiate terms.

Jones purchase the stock of Smithon outright leaving Smithon intact? The stock should not be purchase by Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones acquiring the assets, liabilities and also would inherit the contractual obligations of the selling corporation, would, be the results of the purchase. In lay terms, he has bought the existing Smithon Corporation and he is responsible of ensuring daily operations run efficiently but the tax aspect of acquisition he is responsible for existing and any future tax liabilities that the selling corporation had. It would be my advice for Mr. Jones to not buy the stock because of the liability of current and future tax obligations which Mr. Jones would incur from the purchase of the stock.
5. The confidentiality agreement did limit the scope of the audit performed on ZZZZ Best. It is the job of the auditor to obtain sufficient and appropriate evidence. When Ernst & Whinney were not allowed to follow-up with anyone involved in the restoration process that limited their ability to gather evidence.

Townley lost in this argument because the court did not see undue hardship happening for the company if they not allow Pelvas to attend the services. For our situation, we can win in this case because our claim of undue hardship is valid, unlike the Townley’s. We needed this shift change because of business necessity.
It must include the fundamental terms of the agreement with the intention that no further negotiations are to take place. An invitation to treat is different to an offer as it only invites the party to make an offer and it is not intended to be binding. ix) In contract law consideration is required as an inducement to enter into a contract that is enforceable in the courts.
