FEBRUARY 2009 BUSINESS LAW CHAPTER 19 DEBRA BARONE 1. No, he is not discharged. McMullen must perform the contract, even though it has been made more expensive because of the change of law. The change of law did not prohibit the construction of the building, but made it more expensive to build. In this case the change of law does not make the job impossible. 2. Badcock used the defense of accord and satisfaction. When there was a dispute over the settlement amount, Mitchell accepted the disputed calculations as the amount owed him (accord) and executed the transfer documents and received payment (the satisfaction). 3. No, the defense was not valid. Since the accord was never satisfied, Federal Deposit retained its rights against defendants under their unlimited guaranties. They had the right to return to the original agreement. 4. No, because the contract did not state it was made dependent on Samet. Therefore, her death can not discharge the contract. It is very important to state all of the essential points in a contract.

    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.
