Project #75834 - NATURE AND CLASSES OF CONTRACTS: CONTRACTING ON THE INTERNET

 

2. Fourteen applicants for a city of Providence, Rhode Island, police academy training class each

 

received from the city a letter stating that it was a “conditional offer of employment” subject to

 

successful completion of medical and psychological exams. The 14 applicants passed the medical and

 

 psychological exams. However, these applicants were replaced by others after the city changed the

 

selection criteria. Can you identify an offer and acceptance in this case? Can you make out a bilateral or

unilateral contract? [Ardito et al. v. City of Providence, 213 F. Supp. 2d 358 (D.R.I.)]

 

 

 

9. Dozier and his wife, daughter, and grandson lived

 

in the house Dozier owned. At the request of the

 

daughter and grandson, Paschall made some

 

improvements to the house. Dozier did not

 

authorize these, but he knew that the

 

improvements were being made and did not

 

object to them. Paschall sued Dozier for the

 

reasonable value of the improvements, but Dozier

 

argued that he had not made any contract for

 

such improvements. Was he obligated to pay for

 

such improvements?

 

 

 

10. When Harriet went away for the summer, Landry,

 

a house painter, painted her house. He had a

 

contract to paint a neighbor’s house but painted

 

Harriet’s house by mistake. When Harriet returned

 

from vacation, Landry billed her for $3,100, which

 

was a fair price for the work. She refused to pay.

 

Landry claimed that she had a quasi-contractual

 

liability for that amount.

 

Was he correct?
