Description

Consider the following hypothetical: Ed contracted with Becky to build a house.
Immediately prior to that meeting, Becky was so nervous that she drank an entire bottle
of champagne and she does not remember all of the details of the meeting. Shortly
before the closing, Ed met with Becky, accused her of fraud and threated to prevent the
contract from going to closing. Ed’s associate, a former stunt double for Dwayne “the
Rock” Johnson, stood outside the door for two hours to prevent Becky from leaving. Ed
gave Becky the choice of signing a new contract promising him more money for the
build or going to court. Becky signed the agreement but now has sought legal advice.

• Imagine that you are Becky’s attorney. What would you tell her about whether
she can rescind the contract? (Big Hint: Capacity to Contract, Duress and Undue
Influence)
