BUS-206-4-1 Discussion Show Me My MoneyThe court saw that this case involved a quasi-contract because Reisenfeld did not have an explicit contract with BSI and only an agreement between Reisenfeld and Network. The court used the implied contract (quasi-contract) rules which help prevent unjust enrichment and applied it to BSI, Network Group and Reisenfeld’s case. There was an obvious benefit to BSIfrom the work Reisenfeld performed and even though Network Group had another situation that was defrauding BSI, it was not Reisenfeld performing the fraudulent acts. Therefore, the judge ruled that BSI had an obligation to pay the money it would have normally paid to NetworkGroup directly to Reisenfeld to compensate him for the value provided to BSI. The court also ruled that BSI had not lost any actual money but rather the potential to have made more moneythan they made during the fraudulent period where the Network employee was committing thefraud.
