“Testagrossa Agrees” Discussion Questions

Part 1 1. Testagrossa was said to be a man with a big round head on a very thin, skinny body. He wore a huge cloaked that drowned his figure making him look like a scarecrow. He had a flat face with a wide mouth, squashed nose, and green eyes. He seemed to have a very mysterious and mischievous look on his face. He seemed to be portrayed as a very uppity and active man who worked as a produce weigher. His job seemed to be enjoyable to him mainly because he earned some money and when he would weigh out the basket of peaches he would sneak one peach into his pocket, resulting in having 12 peaches in his pockets and all the way around his giant cloak everyday. When he was caught with all the peaches one day this resulted in him being accused of being a thief. Even though he seemed like a generally happy man he was very poor with no home and rags for clothes. He lived day by day on the stolen fruit and little money earned. As for his opinion on crime, he did not accept it. Even though he committed a crime of stealing everyday, he was against crime and everything Serpenera was involved in, his “dirty business”.
Part 2 1. Serpenera was also a very tall, thin man who seemed very stealthy. He tried to convince Testagrossa to come with him to a “palace” where he could have a suit and a pair of shoes to wear instead of rags, making him look like a gentleman. He seemed very conniving trying to convince Testagrossa to come with him and join him in his “dirty business”. By dirty business Testagrossa was referring to the way that Serpenera made a living, crime, violence, and robbery. He seemed to have a lot of money and accused Testagrossa of being a spy. He told him that everyone thinks he’s a spy and that if he joined him that he would be protected and no one would think he was a spy if he became “one of them”. He bribed…...

Question 1 Jean and Her Mother Make a Verbal Arrangement. Jean Agrees to Cook Dinner and Clean the Dishes and the Kitchen Her Mother Promises to Pay Jean $50.00 in Return. Jean Spends a Considerable Amount of Time One

...QUESTION 1 Jean and her mother have formed an agreement which must meet the six prerequisites for a valid contract before we can determine if Jean can claim a breach of contract. (1. p291) From the information provided, I do not believe that there is a valid contract or that Jean can claim breach of contract. For a contract to be formed, it must meet all of the six prerequisites for a valid contract. The first requirement is ‘Intention to create legal relations’. As noted by Latimer, agreements between parents and children “do not usually give rise to contracts”. (1. p353, ¶5-520) For legal relations to be established, we would need to undertake an objective assessment regarding the agreement. If there is a precedent of Jean’s mother offering and paying money to Jean for completing work around the house or if Jean works in her own business as a Domestic Engineer, then this may be taken into consideration when determining the intentions of both parties. A reasonable person may accept that parents and children make exaggerated statements when trying to achieve a desired outcome – for example, a child may offer a parent $1M if they take them to the circus. Was the statement by Jean’s mother mere puffery? If it was determined that there was an intention to create legal relations, we would then need to ascertain if the remaining requirements have been met. The second is Agreement. There is clearly an agreement as there has been an offer and the offer was accepted. ...
