Prince’s Briefcase: Form of Contracts or “Contracts of Adhesion” (Trujillo Contracts)


Professor Elizabeth Trujillo Contracts: Contracts of Adhesion

Here are two condensed case briefs from my Contracts class, which explains the concept of Contracts of Adhesion. The best way to understand these types of contracts are Baseball Tickets. Once you buy the tickets, and enter the Baseball Stadium, you comply to all the terms located on the back of the stub.

prince's briefcase (princesdailyjournal)Carnival Cruise Lines v. Shuttle (Ticket Problem: Forum Selection Clause, which means place to litigate the lawsuit–Washington vs. Florida?)
Facts
Appellees bought cruise tickets from their home state of Washington and wanted to sue the cruise line in their home state for personal injury. However there was a forum selection clause on their purchased tickets saying that all legal disputes must be litigated in Florida.

Prince’s Takeaway:
All terms in Standardized Agreements (Form Contracts) are binding. Standardized contracts is an exception towards bargain for exchange.

Notes
–Restatements §211 Standardized Agreements: where a party to an agreement signs or assents to writing and has reason to believe in that writing, then party adopts the writing as integrated.
–Stevens dissent: there was no bargain for exchange.

Caspi v. Microsoft Network LLC (Internet Forum Selection: pop-up screen click button)
Prince’s Takeaway
Plaintiffs must have known that they were entering into a contract when they clicked the “I agree” button. They were put on enough notice to be bound of all the terms of the forum selection clause. It has to be a reasonable notice. The forum selection cause was presented in uppercase for emphasis.

Notes
Restatements §211 (3): The Buyer must have adequate notice to build an intent to enter into a contract.

Prince in The City: Boko Haram and The #BringBackOurGirls Scandal

Prince Talks About Boko Haram and #BringBackOurGirls Scandal on Prince in the City Show

On each and every show I don’t just provide you news in the City, but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you. And on this show, I talk about the emergence of a new Foreign Terrorist Organization Boko Haram and investigate if the U.S. can really #BringBackOurGirls?

But before I commented on this important international issue, I first introduced my person of the week who has changed the lives of thousands through her hand-written letters of love: Hannah Brencher.

61975945f445f27ab8d8f9da10f227dc0d36ce51_1600x1200Every Monday, I post a TED talk video (or a YouTube video) of an awesome and inspiring individual who has triumphed over obstacles and/or has something meaningful to say through their words or actions. And I have selected Hannah because of how she turned tragedy into pure comedy by writing love letters to complete strangers.

In her TED talk she tells the tale of her own life story; how in college she would always write hand-written letters to her mother. However, when she made the move to New York City, right after college, she then experienced her first downpour of depression. But instead of standing in the rain, she did the unorthodox: she wrote and hid letters throughout New York City, and took love letter requests from the World Wide Web! And what started out as self-therapy turned into a public cry for action!

One of the greatest takeaways from her TED talk video (and is still my favorite) is the story of the man who almost took his life, but did not because of what Hannah and her team of “strangers” did for this man in words. When I saw this it reminded me of my interviews with the people that I have featured on my website–and how they all changed my life for the better.

So this week (and today), when you are at work or school, grab yourself a piece of paper, note card, thank you card, etc.; write a letter with inspiring words of love (NOT HATE); and tuck it away in a spot where a stranger can pick one up and read it.

For more information on her work go to www.moreloveletters.com.

Now to comment on the #BringBackOurGirls scandal and the emergence of a new Foreign Terrorist Organization: Boko Haram.

MichelleObamaBringBackOurGirlsOn April 15th, 2014, a Nigerian terrorist group called Boko Haram kidnapped 276 Nigerian teenage girls from their school in Chibok. This mass kidnapping galvanized a global outrage and gave rise to a Twitter hashtag campaign #BringBackOurGirls, which First Lady Michelle Obama and dozens of celebrities have joined in. It has also encouraged President Barack Obama to dispatch a team of military personnel, hostage negotiators, and intelligence experts to assist Nigerian authorities to #BringBackOurGirls. However, what make this scandal so interesting is the fact that Boko Haram has always been under the radar of the U.S. (since 2012) but were never considered a serious “terrorist” organization, until November 2013, because of its weak links to Al Qaeda.

In this talk, I do not only bring up implications (“US negotiating with terrorists”) and interesting facts (“Nigeria is the 5th largest oil exporter to the US”) but a declaration that the U.S. can #BringBackOurGirls and that all terrorists (whether it be in Boston, the Middle East, or Africa) do always feel the weight of American Justice.

Prince in The City Show: My 2 cents on Russia’s PM Vladimir Putin and His Influence over Crimea and the World


Prince in the city

On each and every show, I don’t just provide you news in the City but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you.

On this special segment, I give my “2 cents” on Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and his influence over Crimea and the World. In a public display of defiance, on March 18th 2014, Putin signed a treaty to annex Crimea completely–despite global resentment from its international partners (the US and Europe). Describing his move as correcting past injustice and a necessary response to what he calls “Western encroachment” upon Russia’s vital interests, the US has now issued economic sanctions to punish the Kremlin’s actions–even though he has made it clear that he does not want to move into other regions of Ukraine.

How does this impact you?

This impacts you greatly because it will revamp an old war, between two superpowers, that has never been fought; but has played a vital role in international politics: The Cold War. A war that has forced the world to institute a foreign policy initiative known as the “Iron Curtain” and a war that has forced a country to alienate its own people through the “Red Scare.” Although this new war (over Ukraine) will not be like the original Cold War, it could very well drag the US into another war that will cost the country more energy and more tax-payer dollars. If there is no diplomatic resolve over sovereignty in Ukraine, then the next step is military action.

However, what I mainly iterate is Putin’s hypocritical behavior. When we declare military action on Syria–to discontinue Bashir Assad’s use of chemical weapons on his own people–Putin writes a New York Times op-ed pleading for diplomacy. But when he invades a country that is not his (using military force), he ignores diplomacy and resentment from his international partners. So in short Vladimir Putin is not only a hypocrite, but a liability because he is dragging the world into a costly conflict.

Meet The Candidates: Steve Kerrigan, Lieutenant Governor Candidate


image (2)

Steve Kerrigan, born in Central Massachusetts and raised in a small town called Lancaster (North Worcester), has risen up the ranks in politics–dedicating himself to almost two decades of public service for the Massachusetts government and several charities.

He has served as an appointed and elected leader in his hometown of Lancaster; he is a loyal and spirited public servant to U.S. Senator Edward (Ted) M. Kennedy, Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Attorney General Tom Reilly; and has served through two campaigns, in senior roles for President Barack Obama–he co-chaired on the Presidential Inaugural Committee, a post which the President asked him to fill after a two-year stint as CEO for the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee (leading the most successful Presidential nominating convention ever!)

In our interview, he tells me first hand about his experience and relationship with the late great Sen. Ted Kennedy; and how it helped him to not only regain his passion for politics, but sit on senior position roles for the State–As chief of staff to Massachusetts Attorney General Thomas F. Reilly, Steve has helped set the agenda for the largest public law office in New England and has served as a top adviser to Reilly on all issues and with oversight of more than 440 employees and a $30 million budget.

His first priority as Lt. Governor is to make sure that the government reflects the whole of Massachusetts in terms of diversity and wants to chair a “competitive Commonwealth council,” where he can look at all aspects of life in Massachusetts and find ways to make Massachusetts competitive on a global scale–while balancing the budget.

Today, he is the first openly gay candidate to run for Lt. Governor in Massachusetts (and if he does win, he will be the first openly gay elected official in the United States) and serves as the President of the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund: a private non-profit organization dedicated to providing support, programs and services to the families of military service personnel from Massachusetts who have fallen in service to the United States since September 11, 2001.

Prince in The City Show: Rep. Paul Ryan’s Budget for America


Prince in the city

On each and every show, I don’t just provide you news in the City but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you.

On this special segment, I talk about House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s newly released financial budget for the fiscal year of 2015, which he plans to cut $5.1 trillion in spending, mostly on health care, to balance the budget by 2024. I judge his budget based on what it entails and if it aligns with my values as an American.

For the most part I unfortunately disapprove his budget because of the following:
It will drastically cut clean energy and technology funds. It will slash federal pensions and will eliminate a program that will help federal employees to pay off their student loans and would cut the Pell grant by imposing a maximum income eligibility cap.

How does it impact you? You may ask.

It impacts you by seeing first hand what programs/services lawmakers are supporting or not supporting. Unfortunately, what I see is a budget that does not support or forgive student loans. Millions of students (and many of my peers who are still working on the Hill to help their fellow congressman or woman) are still struggling to pay off their student loans. When I see this type of action, it shows that lawmakers are not in-touch with college students who care about paying off their student loans.

As I mentioned in my talk, I’m always open to a deficit reduction plan but if it includes cuts to programs that I value or necessary to be competitive in the global economy then I can’t support it.

Prince in The City Show: Money and Politics inside the Supreme Courthouse of The United States


Prince in the city

 

Prince Sefa-Boakye host of the Prince in The City Show talks about Money and Politics inside the Supreme Courthouse of The United States.

On each and every show, I don’t just provide you news in the City but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you.

image (1)On this special segment, I talked about SCOTUS (Supreme Court of The United States) and its latest decision to strike down limits on individual contributions in political campaign races. To comment on the subject matter I invited UR radio show host Nathan Roman of “The Business Side of Sports.” But before we delved into this political story, I first spent some time to shed light on TED talk speaker Faith Jegede and her call to be extraordinary!

In a world that demands normality, Faith Jegede wants us to be extraordinary because the pursuit of normality leads to the ultimate sacrifice of potential, greatness, progress and change. And she explains this by sharing her personal story of growing up with two autistic brothers (named Remi and Samuel) who saw the world without prejudice. After watching this TED talk video, I said this to my audience:

“If that what it takes to make the world a better place, then we should all be autistic.”

To watch her TED talk go to: Motivation Mondays: Don’t Be Normal, Be Extraordinary!

Segueing back into politics, Nathan and I then discussed the latest Supreme Court decision to strike down limitations on individual contributions in political campaign races. While this was a shock for both us, we still had disagreements of how the end result of this decision would look like; I characterized this as an apocalypse while he didn’t. Nathan saw this as only increasing the amount of what donors can give.

Nathan believes in the power of education and communities–and says that people have to be educated before they vote for people who won’t serve their communities best. I, on the other hand, disagree and say that the people are educated but with the wrong information. This decision will make it easier for corporate donors and PACs to manipulate information in TV ads and funnel thousands of dollars to candidates that will serve their interests–and not the middle class.

(What I didn’t mention is that this decision will force middle class Americans and the working poor to stretch their money on campaign donations which the rich don’t need to. Independent voters will again be bombarded with TV ads and door-to-door campaigns that will try to persuade them of what is factual and what is false)
