Yun Jin (Melody) MGT 511A – Chapter 16-1 1. On December 1, Euphonia, a famous singer, contracted with Boito to sing at Boito’s theater on December 31 for a fee of $25,000 to be paid immediately after the performance. (a) Euphonia, for value received, assigns this fee to Carter. The fee assigned to Carter is valid because Euphonia has right to assign the fee to Carter. Most contract rights include rights under an option contract are assignable. Carter can directly get money from Boito. (b) Euphonia, for value received, assigns this contract to sing to Dumont, an equally famous singer. This assignment is not valid. In this case, even if Dumont is equally competent, this is a contract that is personal in nature. The nature of the duties is personal in that the obligee has a substantial interest in having the delegator perform the contract. So Euphonia can’t find Dumont to substitute her. This is delegation of duties behavior.

    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.
