Chapter 15: Contracts – Mistakes, Fraud, and Voluntary Consent “Luca Brasi held a gun to his head and my father assured him that either his brains, or his signature, would be on the contract.” - Michael Corleone to Kay The Godfather (1972) “I’m going to make I’m an offer he can’t refuse” - Vito Corleone Introduction:  Contract may be unenforceable if the parties have not genuinely assented to its terms by: o Mistake o Misrepresentation o Undue Influence o Duress Mistakes: A unilateral mistake is when one party makes a mistake. We usually don’t let them out of the contract. They only get off the hook if the other party knew there was going to be a mistake and said nothing  A mistake of Fact might allow a contract to be cancelled  Unilateral Mistakes cannot be canceled unless: o If other party to contract knows or should have known that a mistake of fact was made, or o If mistake was due to an inadvertent mathematical and without gross negligence  Bilateral (mutual) mistakes can ve rescinded by either party o Ex: Raffles v Wichelhaus  Mistakes of Value o Generally, contract is enforceable by either party. Innocent Misrepresentation:  An innocent misrepresentation occurs when a person makes statement he believes to be true but actually misrepresents facts o Innocent party can rescind contract, but usually cannot seek damages Duress:  Party who enters into a contract under fear or threat makes the contract VOIDABLE
