Hi Jane, I have 3 more...
Hi Jane,

I have 3 more question that I need your help on. I know that you answer the following but the answer is blocked so I could not offer you payment on it.

Here is the question,

I am suppose to be the attorney for the plaintiff.

Here your link to the question and answer.

www.justanswer.com/questions/1t43c-pastaman-inc-largest-single

Question 1.
Pastaman Inc., the largest single buyer of tomatoes in the area, manufactures several varieties of tomato-based pasta sauces. It entered into a written contract with Farmgirl Inc., for the supply of the "Reddy" tomato, the only type of tomato Pastaman uses in its pasta sauces. The "Reddy" tomato is known for its distinctive flavor and color, and it is particularly desirable for making pasta sauces. The parties agreed to a price of $100 per ton.

The contract, which was on Pastaman's standard form, specified that Farmgirl will deliver to Pastaman, at the end of the growing season in August, all "Reddy" tomatoes that Pastaman might require. The contract also prohibited Farmgirl from selling any excess Reddy tomatoes to a third party without Pastaman's consent. At the time the contract was executed, Farmgirl objected to that provision. A Pastaman representative assured them that although the provision was standard in their contracts with their growers, Pastaman had never attempted to enforce the provision. In fact, Pastaman routinely sought to prevent growers from selling their surplus crop to third parties. The contract also stated that Pastaman could reject Farmgirl's tomatoes for any reason, even if they conformed to the contract.

On August 1 Pastaman told Farmgirl that it would need 40 tons of Reddy tomatoes at the end of August. Farmgirl anticipated that it would harvest 65 tons of Reddy tomatoes commencing on August 30. Because of the generally poor growing season, Reddy tomatoes were in short supply. Another manufacturer, Spaghettiboy Inc., offered Farmgirl $250 per ton for its entire crop of Reddy tomatoes. On August 15 Farmgirl accepted the Spaghettiboy offer and informed Pastaman that it was repudiating the Pastaman/Farmgirl contract.

After Farmgirl's repudiation, Pastaman was able to contract for only 10 tons of Reddy tomatoes on the spot market at $200 per ton, but has been unable to procure any more. Other varieties of tomatoes are readily available at prices of $100 per ton or less on the open market, but Pastaman is reluctant to switch to these because it fears that its sauces won't taste the same. Pastaman believes that Reddy tomatoes give its sauces a unique color, texture, and flavor. It is now August 20. Pastaman demands that Farmgirl fulfil their contract in all respects. Farmgirl refuses.

Question 2 Case Study

Mr. Silicon Crisp is the president of Chip Inc., a small organization that makes computer chips for the secondary personal computer market. In the regular course of Chip Inc.’s business, Silicon did the following:

He sent an e-mail message to his daughter Pringles, the vice president of the organization, which stated, “This is to confirm our conversation of the other day wherein you agreed to make your home garage available next week to Chip Inc. for storage of Chip Inc. items. You will be paid $5 per year.” Pringles sent an e-mail message back stating, “That’s right, Dad; the garage is clean and ready for storage.”

Silicon also sent an e-mail message to Walkers, a customer of Chip Inc., which stated, “We agree to replace our defective chip in your computer, but only if you agree not to bring any legal action against Chip Inc.” Walkers sent a return e-mail message stating that he agreed to these terms.

Silicon telephoned Dorito, another customer of Chip Inc., to confirm that Chip Inc. would send 100 computer chip units to Dorito, who had already fully paid for the units, but only if Dorito agreed to pay an additional 10% due to an increase in Chip Inc.’s operating costs. Dorito reluctantly agreed because he needed the chips immediately.

Silicon wrote a letter to Sandy Inc. in which Chip Inc. offered to buy 10 tons of processed raw material during the coming year at market price should Chip Inc. need any raw material. Sandy Inc. responded agreeing to sell all the raw material to Chip Inc. that it might want.

Is there adequate consideration for Chip Inc.’s agreements described above with Pringles, Walkers, Dorito, and Sandy Inc.? Discuss.
_________________________________________________________
Here the third question.

I do not have a contract but I live in Texas if that help so any rental agreement would do,like an apartment lease agreement if that okay with you.

Look at your rental agreement and identify what the contractual situation is regarding subleasing and assignment. If you aren't renting, provide a contract you are associated with either at home or work. Please be sure to not include any aspects of a contract that is confidential. What is the law that applies to the contract? Does the contract have an integration clause? How does this clause affect the agreement? Do you think any of the provisions are unfair? If so, state which ones and why you feel the provision is unfair.

I suffered some injuries in the rib area a few months ago and I can understand. It is amazing how hurting that one area can keep you from moving or getting into any comfortable position.

 

The Brief answer is still available, let me know if you did not save a copy of the first answer I provided to this question.

Business Lawyer: Jane T (LLC), Attorney replied 8 years ago

DearCustomer

 

From what I understand you can contact JA customer service to ask them to bonus ([email protected]).

 

I have been told that from the customer side the way to add a bonus is to first accept, which you have already, and then that button turns orange - and to click it for a bonus.
