Will the builder be able to hold us liable for the additional costs? Explain. (5)


  1. My wife is starting to get concerned about my weight. She promises that if I lose 20 pounds in the next six months that she will give me $10,000 from a separate trust account she had prior to our marriage (not community property) to do whatever I want with. I lose the weight and she tells me that she’s not giving me the money, as it was something I should have done anyways. Assuming that I’m mad and become vindictive, can I hold her to the agreement in contract? Explain. (5)


  1. The town of Mystery, Alaska, is told that the New York Rangers are coming to play their local pond hockey team in an exhibition game to be televised nationally.

The New York Rangers get scared and try to back out. If they don’t come, what legal principle might allow Mystery to recover their costs? Explain. Assume no contract was actually signed and the complete details were ever explicitly stated, but a Rangers representative did confirm to the town that they were coming. (7)

While they are there, he buys some stuff for dinner at a cost of $15 and a new video game that costs $45 with money I had given for him to save for his first car. I’m furious and tell him to get all of the money back as he was just a stupid kid. What will he likely be able to recover from Walmart? Explain. (6)

What are my options at this point? (7)
