Terms of Structures in the Courts
Please answer the questions posed at the end of each case study in essay form. Each essay will be judged on your capacity to present strong, logical discussions that support your conclusions.
Case Study 1
Parks, a 7-foot, 265-pound center for the San Diego Slick, objected when his contract was assigned from the ABC Corporation to the XYZ Corporation, the team’s new owner. The change of owners did not cause a change in the composition of the team although a new coach was hired. Parks’s compensation and his responsibilities remained the same.
- Was this contract assignable?
Case Study 2
Andy owes Bill a debt. Bill assigns the debt to Carl for $200, but Carl fails to give notice of the assignment to Andy. Andy pays the debt to Bill.
Consider the following when preparing this essay:
- Is Andy still liable to Carl?
- Does Carl have any rights against Bill?
