The Best (Modern) Contracts Cases
posted by Miriam Cherry
Today I received an interesting note from Caprice Roberts (Savannah), who is re-designing and updating her contracts syllabus. She uses a fairly traditional textbook that contains many of the old common law chestnuts (See e.g. Peerless). Caprice would like to know what are the best cases that she’s not teaching? In other words, what are your top five favorite (modern) contracts cases to teach? For these purposes, “cases” could include something ripped from a recent case or a newsworthy sports or entertainment contract dispute. I am sure that one of the suggestions will be Leonard v. Pepsico, and Prof. Lawrence Cunningham’s Contracts in the Real World Stories of Popular Contracts and Why They Matter is chock full of them. Readers?
