It is illegal method of contracting as the falsification statement influence the decision of another party (van Erp, 2013). Common law does not permit that kind of practices.

This means that any terms that were discussed prior to the contract, that are not included in writing, do not apply. The sales contract signed by CelTel that contains the merger clause limited damages to the lesser of the replacement costs or repair of the widgets and let the seller choose the option. Assuming CelTel was not responsible
The unanticipated events did not make the performance impossible, but rather potentially delayed it to a later date. Reasons For Judgment: In Folia v. Relenski (1997), 14 R.P.R. (3d) 5 (B.C.S.C)., the test for frustration is states: “…The Disruption must be permanent, not temporary or transient. The change must totally affect the nature, meaning, purpose, effect and consequence of the contract so far as concerns either or both parties.” There is no indication that the unanticipated circumstances changed the nature of the contract or made it impossible to perform, and therefore frustrated. There was nothing explicitly stated within the contract that required a timely flight either.

Textualism, as Antonin Scalia describes it, is inconsistent in its nature. While he first claims that a good textualist would never interpret the law with the legislator’s intent in mind, Scalia later violates his own convictions by allowing for corrections of Scrivener’s errors. In principle, correcting Scrivener’s errors requires the judge to think about what the original writer meant to say with the statute, not the literal meaning of the text. This may mean adding a single additional word to the statute, but something as deceptively simple as one word could have drastic effects on the meaning of the law. Therefore, Scalia cannot claim to account for Scrivener’s errors while also chastising methods of interpretation that consider what the
The decisions rendered in Moly (supra) and Vidyadharan (supra) have not noted the decision in Bhooraji (supra), a binding precedent, and hence they are per incuriam and further, the law laid down therein, whereby the conviction is set aside or matter is remanded after setting aside the conviction for fresh trial, does not expound the correct proposition of law and, accordingly, they are hereby, to that extent,

Introduction – A Contract As the law stands, minors cannot make contracts for many stated and explained reasons. A contract is usually a black and white document that consists of voluntary promises or agreement between two parties who are competent on the consciousness of the contract on what to do or not to do. There is also an oral contract which is least commonly used when speaking on legal grounds and such. A contract is legally enforced by the law. These binding promises or agreement may be in written form or oral form, depending on the situation and nature of the said contract.
