Big Time Toymaker At what point, if ever, did the parties have a contract? I do not think the two parties involved ever had a contract. In the scenario, the parties reached an agreement only three days before the end of a 90-day deadline set in the original negotiation contract. In the original negotiation contract, it states there would be no distribution contract unless it was in writing. When the BTT manager sent the e-mail to Chou, he mentioned the terms of a distribution agreement, but it does not make the e-mail a contract, as neither party signed it.
The contract was an exclusive contract. It started with BTT was interested in distributing Strat, and the agreement was with Chou and BTT on an exclusive negotiation rights for 90 days. With this exclusive there was a $25,000 exchange. The stipulations of this negotiation was that there be no distribution contract existed unless it was in writing. Before the expiration period, the parties had reached an oral agreement.

Case Assignment Week 3 Should Justin Ellsworth's Parents have been given access to his email? A utilitarian view of this situation dictates that Justin Ellsworth’s parents should not have been given access to his email account. In the time before email, the letter was the most common form of written communication. It was a formal process where the author had to put ink to paper, place the paper in an envelope, address the envelope, place proper postage on the envelope and ensure the entire letter made it in the mail before the next pick up time or your letter would sit an additional day (two days if you missed Saturday’s pickup). Your letter would take a day or two to reach its destination then if the recipient responded with a letter of his own; the process is repeated back to you.
The rule that requires the landowner to make sensible efforts to lease the property again is one of the most important duties to mitigate damages (man). Therefore, the management company leased the properties to the Craig’s Crocodile Inc. with three year lease contract; however, the Craig’s Crocodile Inc. broke the lease contract and left the property leasing and the remaining two years lease not paid.

During the conversation, government informed Mil-Spec that due to expiration of fund including contingency fund for the project, it is impossible for the government to pay additional cost over contingency amount of up to $7,000, and such contingency fund will also expire after September 30, 1983.

However, Mil-Spec called the government, and informed that Mil-Spec would not sign the modification form. The reason behind of this was because IRS at Mil-Spec informed Mr. Barnes before he signed the form that he could claim more funds than what government proposed in the modification.
After three days of negotiation, Porter presented a settlement offer of $250,000 to Schultz over the telephone and subsequently mailed a check of that amount to Schultz based off of an agreement between the two.
