Have a bias toward implementing a contract Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 o Before, if you had received something in the mail that you didn’t ask for, that was an offer o If you kept it, then you accepted, and you had to pay for it So you would need to return it if you didn’t want it o This became a problem, because if you wanted to send something back, you had to pay return postage o Postal Reorganization Act stopped all this If you receive something in the mail and you didn’t request it, it’s a gift Case o When International Filter meets with Conroe Jin, they extend an invitation to deal But they want a manager of their company to approve the deal This is just an invitation to deal Conroe Jin extends the offer Filter has to approve the deal They are the ones who accept it When someone includes a “We have to approve it”, that’s an invitation to deal Case (Fujimoto)

o If you want a written response, ask for it o Here, the pickle company got a direct answer Two guys say they’ll quit unless they get better salary o The president agrees, they get a contract, they sign it, and keep it The president should know that they accept the offer since they keep working o Can the profit sharing be done on part of the year? Guys should be paid for the time they worked, and be pro-rated for the remaining months o (Some other argument that was made) o How do you accept an offer? There are a lot of ways Reasonable person standard Case o Implied contract o One thing in law is that courts do not like unjust enrichment Basically, there is rarely a free lunch in the law So if you’re going to receive something, you’re going to pay for it o Wall was half on one guy’s property, and half on another guy’s property o First guy said that he expected to be paid, second guy was aware of this expectation o All the second guy had to do was say stop—he was aware of what was going on —but he didn’t So he still had to pay Dickenson (important), Petterson, Haymer, (something)

    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.
