Armstrong v. Rohm and Haas Company, Inc. Facts : o Plaintiffs worked at a manufacturing plant closed by RH, which gave employees a choice: accept a severance package or transfer to another facility o Plant manager told plaintiffs to accept severance and begin a company, stating that RH “would like to” give plaintiffs “all [outsourced] work” o Plaintiffs followed manager’s suggestions, but there was little work since RH still outsourced elsewhere, so plaintiffs sued for breach of contract Court’s Decision : o Defendant’s alleged promise is too vague to ascertain a reasonably certain basis for providing an appropriate remedy Unclear what volume of work was to be performed How could court determine whether Armstrong and Pottle had performed their end of the bargain? Price paid for work? What if amount they could handled changed over time, as they gained experience? Not all of these issues are insurmountable for Armstrong and Pottle, taken seperately. The lack of definiteness is fatal because the court cannot supply these terms o RH’s alleged promise is therefore unenforceable as a matter of law Motion to dismiss granted in favor of RH.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
