Here are 4 questions I Have. Please be as short as possible. thank you. 1. Nina owns a used car lot. She signs and sends a fax to Seth, a used car wholesaler who has a huge lot of cars in the same city. The fax says, ?Confirming our agrmt ? I pick any 15 cars fr yr lot 30% below blue book.? Seth reads the fax, laughs, and throws it away. Two weeks later, Nina arrives to purchase 15 of Seth?s cars. Is he obligated to sell? 2. Fred Witt owned a Ford Bronco. Steve Rosen operated a used car lot. Witt delivered his automobile to Rosen, asking him to resell it if he could. Witt specified that he wanted all cash for his car, not cash plus a trade-in. Rosen sold the car to Richard Park for $12,800, but took a trade-in as part payment. Rosen promised to deliver the Bronco?s certificate of title to Park within a few days, but never did. He was also obligated to deliver proceeds of the sale to Witt, and of course failed to do that. Park claimed that the car was rightfully his. Witt argued that Park owned nothing because he never got the title and because Witt never got his money. Who loses and why. 3. Jones, an employee of Maxwell's garage, insists on using gasoline rather than nonflammable solvents to clean mechanical parts because, in his words, "nothing works like gasoline." One day, Ralph Maxwell, the owner of the garage, absentmindedly lights a cigarette while cleaning some parts. The resulting explosion severely injures Ralph and burns down Maxwell's garage and the massage parlor next door. In addition, Ralph's dog Spot is set ablaze and Spot runs 2 blocks before collapsing on the porch of a house belonging to Thomas. Thomas's house is set on fire and burns to the ground. The owners of the massage parlor and Thomas sue Ralph for negligence. What result for the massage parlor? What result for Thomas? Please be sure to give me COMPLETE analysis for each one of these scenarios and to provide the COMPLETE RULE. 4. On January 1, Damon, for consideration, orally promised to pay Gary $300 a month for as long as Gary lived, with the payments to be made on the first day of every month. Damon made the payments regularly for nine months and then made no further payments. Gary claimed that Damon had breached the oral contract and sued Damon for damages. Damon contended that the contract was unenforceable because, under the Statute of Frauds, contracts that cannot be performed within one year must be in writing. Discuss whether Damon will succeed in this defense.
