Better than Fuller:a two interests model of remedies for breach of contract

Better than Fuller:a two interests model of remedies for breach of contract

7 assumed that gain-based damages should not be so extended. A comment by an anonymous reviewer of this paper leads me at this point to enter a clarification. My longstanding criticisms of the extension of gain-based remedies to simple contract have been of making those remedies (part of) the default rule of remedies for breach, which is so inimical to the function of contract that it would be impossible unless those damages are made mandatory, for otherwise commercial parties would constantly oust the gain-based remedy. 20 But in principle I have no objection to the parties making a bespoke stipulation for restitution, account of profits, disgorgement, unjust enrichment or whatever as the remedy for breach of their contract. The Wrotham Park ‘lost opportunity to bargain’ problem arises from parties’ failure to do exactly this. 21 I have in general repeatedly criticised the parties to complex contracts for failing to make necessary provision for bespoke remedies when the contract they are trying to make requires them to do so. 22 A great deal of the confusion from which this area of the law now suffers stems from an attempt to give remedies to parties who have not themselves secured contractual agreement to those remedies, when the correct contractual response to this should be to enforce what they

Contractual remedies for breach of contract under the CISG and a comparison to Guatemalan law

Contractual remedies for breach of contract under the CISG and a comparison to Guatemalan law

This orderly and systematic concept of contractual breach, and consequently of contractual remedies, can be contrasted to the codes of civil law countries, given that these systems regulate the actions to which creditors are entitled in the event of a breach of contract in a scattered and unorganized manner. It is notable that, in practice, this traditional contractual remedies are not appropriate to the current patterns of trade for different reasons, including their rigidity and the need of judicial intervention. Therefore, the ratification and implementation of uniform and international instruments such as the CISG is of great benefit to indirectly update those systems, like the one in force in Guatemala, which have statutes that are no longer responsive to the needs of businesses.

Efficient Breach, Reliance and Contract Remedies at the WTO

Efficient Breach, Reliance and Contract Remedies at the WTO

must be wrongful in some way, such as violative of an international treaty like the WTO agreements. 88 Remedies associated with the tort of interference with contractual relations have been criticized for undermining the economic benefits brought about by efficient breach. 89 If a contracting party can be persuaded to breach a less lucrative contract in favor of a better one and still afford to compensate the injured party with whom it had originally promised to deal, then tort law should not nullify that which contract law has encouraged by imposing an extra layer of liability upon the violator. Granting the plaintiff an additional cause of action in tort against the inducing party would seemingly allow inefficient over-recovery. However this concern is inapplicable in the WTO context because there is no recourse for the injured supplier against the offending Member state or against a third party importer i.e. against the party with which it was intending to form trading relations with, as there may not be any contract in existence upon which a conventional suit in contract could be founded, or if there is it may have been rendered inoperative by the imposition of a trade barrier. 90 There will therefore be

relationship, i.e. events leading up to the dismissal such as the manner of a suspension, the conduct of the employer’s investigation into allegations made against the employee, and the conduct of the disciplinary hearing. As for losses closely connected to the dismissal they would be disallowed at common law and fall within the ‘Johnson exclusion zone’: recovery of any such losses would be governed by the statutory unfair dismissal regime and be recoverable in the employment tribunal, subject to the prescribed eligibility criteria, limitation period and the statutory rules and cap on compensation. As for Edwards, this concerned the appropriate response of the common law where an employer fails to follow the terms of a disciplinary procedure that has been incorporated into an employee’s contract of employment. On its face, the majority of the Supreme Court in Edwards simply applied the same line of reasoning in Johnson to an express term of the contract of employment by ruling that an express contractual term (derived from a disciplinary procedure) could not serve to cut down or limit the employer’s implied or express power of dismissal. However, that would be a fundamental misreading of Edwards, since although partially couched in the language of causes of action and liability, in fact, it is more accurately cast as a case about remedies whereby damages were denied as a suitable remedy for the breach of such an express term: there is an implicit assumption underlying the majority judgments in Edwards that the common law has the capacity to confer a cause of action to establish liability in such a set of factual circumstances despite the absence of a particular remedy, i.e. damages. 15 It is to the consequences of Johnson and Eastwood for the imposition of

11 is knowledge”. 55 Collins identifies another potential aim of Comparative Law, namely “to identify better legal solutions in foreign legal systems and then to recommend their incorporation into domestic law..” 56 However, he argues that this is not always effective, 57 due to different social and economic structures. 58 Moreover, the concepts form clusters of concepts; combining as a coherent and consistent set of rules and principles for the regulation of aspects of social life. It is not possible to transplant a single foreign concept into domestic law, without considering the coherence of its conceptual scheme, which can result in confusion and discrepancy. 59 Consequently, this thesis will not argue that the remedies in one legal regime are superior to those of another, or that they should be applied by another. Any such approach would be unrealistic and futile. Instead, the focus of the monograph is upon analysing English remedies for a breach of the Contract of Sale of Goods by comparison with Saudi law and will consist of a detailed analysis of the reasons why the two legal systems adopt the approaches that they do.

Remedies for breach of contract under the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods

Remedies for breach of contract under the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods

Thus, the first alternative is to show that the breach of contract suffered is affecting the very basis of the contract (Article 25 CISG). This will entitle the aggrieved party to set aside the contract. 50 In this respect, the seller’s right to cure a breach, which has been mentioned above, takes precedence: in the case-law and literature, the prevailing view is that, as long as there is a possibility of curing the defect without causing the buyer unreasonable inconvenience, the breach of contract is not a fundamental one. 51 The second alternative is to terminate the contract because the other party does not perform its core obligations. 52 The term ‘core obligations’—which is not a tech- nical term under the Convention—is used here to make it clear that not every non- performance of contractual obligations will give raise to a claim for avoidance of the contract: the non-performance must relate to the seller’s obligation to deliver the goods, or to the buyer’s duty to pay or take delivery of the goods. 53 As a side obser- vation, it may come as a surprise to the representatives of the Germanic jurisdictions that the Convention considers the buyer’s duty to take delivery of the goods as a core obligation, breach of which could trigger the seller’s right to avoid the contract. 54 Not performing within the contractually-agreed period will not yet as such constitute a fundamental breach, except for cases where time is of the essence and the other party was aware of that time constraint. 55 Therefore, in case of non-performance, the creditor must first fix an additional period of time within which the debtor may perform. 56 If the latter fails to do so within this additional period, or if it makes it clear while the additional period is running that it will not perform, the creditor can

This paper studies the classical problem of breach decision by using a standard tool of game theoretic analysis of settlement and litigation. The conditions under which the partial expectation interest rule or reliance interest rule dominate the normal expectation interest rule are presented. It shows a trade-off between the breach and litigation decision under a situation of asymmetric information. Since the breach decision matters, it must be balanced with the settlement-litigation decision. Especially in the case of the high litigation cost of defendants, the parital expectation interest rule and reliance interest rules are superior to the normal expectaion interest rule.

Therefore, these standardize form does not have the necessary provision which makes it compulsory to use it. In addition, although the nominated sub-contracts are having the same template as the main contract is the term in the contract fair enough for the nominated sub-contractor or is it lopsided? Albeit the existence of these said standardized contracts, these sub- contractors still suffers from it. These standardized contracts do not seem to act its purpose of protecting these sub-contractors. Due to these issues, there is a need to determine what are the remedies available to these sub-contractors.

Remedies for breach of implied guarantess in a contract of supply of services under the Malaysian Consumer Protection Act 1999

Remedies for breach of implied guarantess in a contract of supply of services under the Malaysian Consumer Protection Act 1999

Conclusion: The CPA is specifically designed to protect consumers and its enactment is hoped to provide a comprehensive code for this purpose. As far as the remedies for service failure are concerned, the CPA provides a new regime of statutory remedies by providing consumers with various remedies, ranging from a simple repair up to the cancellation of contract, depending on the nature and extent of failure. Obviously the provisions on the available remedies are intended to overcome the inadequacy of remedies under the existing law of contract and tort of negligence. However the discussion above reveals that there are several loopholes in Part IX of the CPA that need to be remedied for a better protection to consumers. Despite the practicality of the remedy of rectification of failure, it may not fair in certain occasions to compel the consumer to return to the original supplier to remedy the defects especially if the consumer has a previous bad experience with the supplier. The CPA only allows the consumers to have the failure remedied elsewhere if the supplier fails to remedy the performance within a reasonable time. It would be more useful for consumers if this remedy to be given as a matter of options rather than being the principal remedy. The consumers should be allowed either to require the same supplier to repair the defect or to go to other supplier of his choice and then claiming from the former the payment for making good of that defect. There is also a need to have a provision that the right to remedy the defect can only be applied within a reasonable time and it must not cause significant inconvenience to consumers. The CPA also should make it clear that the supplier must bear any cost incurred in remedying the defect.

On the Importance of Default Breach Remedies

On the Importance of Default Breach Remedies

in which the seller (A) proposes the contract and the one where the buyer (B) does so. Overall we thus used a 4 by 2 treatments design. Clearly, in practice contract price p is not part of the default breach rem- edy. Nevertheless we incorporated p in the default contract besides compen- sation amount , because we felt that allowing subjects to bargain separately about p would make the experiment too di¢ cult. Likewise, in reality the ac- tual ‘fall back’ in case of disagreement is the situation without a contract. Yet having a contract with the default remedy as fall back strengthens the interpretation of this particular remedy as being the status quo. It thus gives the alternative non-Coasian prediction that default remedies may matter a fair chance. Another advantage of our setup is that there are no real costs to proposing a contract di¤erent from the default, because the proposer need not be afraid of ending up with no contract at all. S/he can thus safely propose his/her most preferred contract (but see the discussion of incentive compatibility below). This would not be the case if the situation without a contract served as fall back.

Breach Remedies Including Hybrid Investments

Breach Remedies Including Hybrid Investments

Finally, our analysis illustrates a subtle difference between mechanism design and the economic analysis of real world institutions. As we have already mentioned, the enforcement of reliance damages requires investment to be verifiable. Then, however, parties should theoretically be able to achieve the first best by writing a forcing contract in which they stipulate the efficient investment level. Yet, we show that this does not necessarily imply that reliance damages induce the first best. Indeed, the issue is not whether the information required to operate an institution is in theory sufficient to achieve the first best. It is about how institutions make use of that information. 19

Breach Remedies Including Hybrid Investments

Breach Remedies Including Hybrid Investments

2 Edlin (1996) also analyses ‘Cadillac contracts’ in the context of expectation damages but makes a different point: He considers a setting where the seller makes selfish investments. In the absence of a contract, there will be underinvestment due to the hold-up problem. If, however, the contract stipulates the highest possible quality/quantity, and it is the buyer who breaches the contract, the seller will overinvest. This is because he is fully insured and fails to take into account the states of the world where it is inefficient to trade (This is a version of the ‘overreliance’ result by Shavell (1984) who implictly assumes Cadillac contracts by modelling the trade decision as binary). To solve this problem, Edlin (1996) proposes to set the price so low, that it will always be the investing seller who breaches the contract. That makes him the residual claimant and provides him with efficient investment incentives. Yet, in order to make the seller accept a contract with such a low price, the buyer has to pay the seller a lump sum up front. By contrast, in our model, we are concerned with hybrid investments and need not rely on any up-front payments.
