Business Law Paper
Contract Breach Analysis
An oral agreement was made among several parties to pool their money and open a consulting company. The individuals had to first form a joint company. However, one individual was not able to provide his share of the funding at the time of the company formation and was subsequently pushed out of the deal by the others, who formed the company without him. The man then sued the owners.
In response to the lawsuit, the defendants argued that the plaintiff had no documentation to support a cause of action. The court then had to decide whether the plaintiff’s complaint and statement of fact could support a breach of contract claim when no contract seemed to exist. Furthermore, the court considered the idea that a theory of quasi-contract could maintain a cause of action that could consist of the theft of ownership opportunity and/or breach of fiduciary duty
