Abstract Men’s risk behavior during a 3-month period prior to parole revocation was assessed. Frequent alcohol use was higher among men who had more children, were homeless, or had a history of alcohol and other drug abuse treatment. The use of drugs was greater among men who were younger or had a history of sexually transmitted infection (STI). The use of hard drugs was higher among men who had history of injection drug use.

...UCC. 20.3 Revocation of Acceptance Roy E. Farrar Produce Company (Farrar) was a packer and shipper of tomatoes in Rio Arribon County, New Mexico. Farrar contacted Wilson, an agent and salesman for International Paper Company (International), and ordered 21,500 tomato boxes for $0.64 per box. The boxes were to each hold between 20 and 30 pounds of tomatoes for shipping. When the boxes arrived at Farrar’s plant, 3,624 of them were immediately used to pack tomatoes. When the boxes were stacked, they began to collapse and crush the tomatoes contained within them. The produce company was forced to repackage the tomatoes and store the unused tomato boxes. Farrar contacted International and informed it that it no longer wanted the boxes because they could not perform as promised. International claimed that Farrar had accepted the packages and must pay for them. Who wins? In the text, the following is stated “Revocation of acceptance is not effective until the seller or lessor is so notified. In addition, the revocation must occur within a reasonable time after the buyer or lessee discovers or should have discovered the grounds for the revocation. The revocation, which must be of a lot or commercial unit, must occur before there is any substantial change in the condition of the goods (e.g., before perishable goods spoil) [UCC 2-608(1), 2A-517(1)].” (Cheeseman, P. 315) In the above case, of the 21,500 boxes, 3,624 were already damaged when Farrar attempted the revocation of......

...frère Sylvain. Julien avait posté une lettre le 28 août 2010 dans laquelle il acceptait, sans conditions, l’offre de Louis. Lorsqu’il est de retours chez lui, Sylvain lui dit que Louis ne serait pas en mesure d’acheter le bateau faute d’argent. Questions Juridiques : Est-ce que Julien peut fonder une action sur rupture du contrat contre Louis? Sous questions : a) Étant donné que la lettre d’acceptation a été postée le même jour qu’il y ait eu une révocation de l’offre, existe-t-il toujours une offre? Un contrat a-t-il véritablement été formé? b) N’ayant pas parlé à son destinataire directement, est-ce que la révocation de l’offre a véritablement été communiquée? ¬c) Est-ce que l’utilisation de la poste constituait un moyen d’acceptation raisonnable? Analyse : a) Étant donné que la lettre d’acceptation a été postée le même jour qu’il y ait eu une révocation La présente affaire s’agit d’une étude sur la formation du contrat et nous porterons une attention particulière à l’acceptation et à la révocation d’une offre. Celles-ci se sont réalisées dans un délai très rapproché, donc nous examinerons la chronologie des évènements pour déterminer l’existence du contrat. Pour ce faire, nous utiliserons de la doctrine, de la jurisprudence et des règles de lois applicables. Avant de rentrer dans l’analyse de cette première question juridique, il est aussi important de savoir que la contre-offre de Louis fait qu’il est devenu le pollicitant et Julien, le......

...The issue in the given situation is whether Mr. Robert’s revocation of offer is effective as against Mr. James. Section 2(h) of the Contracts Act 1950 defines contract as an agreement enforceable by law. In order for an agreement to be enforceable by law, it must consist of six essential elements which are offer, acceptance, consideration, intention to create legal relations, capacity and certainty. Offer is defined in Section 2(a) of the Contracts Act as something which is capable of being converted into an agreement by its acceptance. According to section 5(1) of the Contracts Act, a proposal may be revoked at any time before the communication of its acceptance is complete as against the proposer, but not afterwards. But the postal rule states that in the event of acceptance by post or telegram, the acceptance is complete as against the proposer upon posting or delivery of the telegram. Therefore, revocation of offer must be communicated before such posting or delivery. However, if the revocation of offer is made by post, the revocation is only effective when it comes to the knowledge of the person to whom it is made and not at the time when the letter of revocation is posted. In the case of Byrne v. Van Tienhoven, the defendant posted a letter of offer to the plaintiff on 1st October. The plaintiff received the letter on 11th October and accepted the offer on the same day by telegram. On 8th October a second letter had been sent from the defendant revoking the offer,......

...The issue in the given situation is whether revocation of offer by post is effective due to the lapsed of time. Section 4(3)(a) of the Contract Act 1950 defines that the communication of a revocation is complete as against the person who makes it, when it is put into a course of transmission to the person to whom it is made, so as to be out of the power of the person who makes it. Proposal can be withdraw by communicating the notice of revocation by the proposer to the party to whom the proposal was made. Revocation of offer by post is effective is defined in Section 5(1) of the Contract Act 1950 provides that a proposal may be revoked at any time before the communication of its acceptance is complete as against the proposer, but not afterwards. Time is prescribed in the proposal for its acceptance. Under Section 6(b) of the Contract Act 1950 defines that a proposal is revoked by the lapsed of the time prescribed in the proposal for its acceptance, or, if no time is so prescribed, by the lapse of a reasonable time, without communication of acceptance. In the case of Ramsgate Victoria Hotel Co Ltd v Montefiore, the applicant had applied for shares but was not told until a certain date that his offer had been accepted and allocated to him. Now the balance owing on the shares was due. So the applicant refused to pay and the company threatened to sue him alleging breach of contract. It was stated that the offer to purchase shares had not been accepted within a......

Probation and Parloe

...Probation and Parole By Najami Harris This assignment is due for cj1oo section 4 Mrs Rose on June,10 2014 Probation and Parole Probation-The release of an offender from detention ,subject to a period of good behavior under supervision. Parole-The releases of a pensioner on temporarily leave from prison due to good behavior. Probation allows some flexibility in the handling of criminal offenders. It permits judges to make discretionary decisions about an individual's ability to function in society, giving them more options than simply sending an offender to prison. Probation is a system of "second chances" that simultaneously maintains monitoring mechanisms over would-be criminals. It provides individuals a chance to redeem themselves, but monitors their behavior and progress to prevent them from committing crimes again. Disadvantages of Probation Probation is generally considered a better alternative than jail (from the perspective of a convict and his family), but it still represents an incursion by the state into the lives of individuals. Millions of people are "in the system" under probation, a fact that has been criticized by sociologists, constitutional rights activists, civil rights leaders and others, who claim that ensnaring so many......

...venture partners of Dr. Wobben, in carrying out the manufacturing process under the name of Enercon India Limited, which was formed in 1994. The licences to use the technical know-how were vested by Dr. Wobben with Enercon Indian Limited, through written intellectual property licence agreements. However, the agreement dated 29.9.2006 was terminated by Enercon GmbH in 2008, due to non-fulfillment of obligations. Dr. Aloys Wobben had hence contended that even after the termination of the agreements, the respondents continued the use of the patents, without due authority. <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p> This led to a legal struggle between the two parties. The respondents had filed 23 revocation petitions before the Appellate Board, praying for the revocation of the patents held in the name of the appellant. They had also filed counterclaims, in response to the patent infringement suits brought about by the appellants. The litigation had now reached the Supreme Court, in order to determine the correct course of action to be adopted, in the light of compound proceedings having been invoked by the two parties. One of the questions before the court was whether the challenge, having been raised by the defendant through a counter-claim, can only be determined at the hands of the High Court, i.e., while dealing with the counter-claim. Additionally, whether the Appellate Board, after the filing of the counter-claim in the infringement suit, would cease to......

...s sold the wool to a 3rd party. Held: there was a good contract on 5 September when the letter of acceptance was posted. In cases of acceptance through post, acceptance is complete upon posting may be excluded by the express terms of offer. In the case of Howell Securities Ltd v Huges -the offer prescribed that the acceptance must be by notice in writing to the intending vendor. - Held:- in such a case, mere posting of letter of acceptance was not sufficient. -The acceptance would only take effect when actually received by the offeror. (6) Limitations of Postal Rule 1. Only applies to acceptances and not to any other type of communication which may pass between potential contracting parties. Offers, counter offers, revocation of offers, etc must all be properly communicated, even if sent through the post or by telegram. 2. It only applies where it was reasonable for the acceptance to be sent by post Where the offer was made by post, then in the absence of any indication from the offeror to the contrary, it will certainly be reasonable to reply in the same form, and the postal rule will operate. Wherever the parties are communicating over a distance, it is likely to be reasonable to use post, even if the offer has been made in some other way. Henthorn v Fraser Where the circumstances are such that it must have been within the contemplation of the parties that, according to the ordinary usages of mankind , the post might be used as a means of......

Law of Contract

...makers before a certain time ends, and not afterwards. This has important implications for the negotiating parties in that they have to discharge obligations created by default arising out of failure to duly communicate offers, acceptances, and their revocations. Communication and revocation of offer and acceptance, which may be made by acts or omissions of the party concerned (section 3), constitutes a complex area in the law of contract. On the other hand, this area of law of contract is also very old, calling for its rationalization in the face of the needs of the modern time. According to s. 4, Contract Act 1872, the communication of offer/proposal becomes complete when it comes to the knowledge of the offeree. The communication of acceptance becomes complete as against the proposer when its is put in a course of transmission to him and goes out of the acceptors’ power, and as against the acceptor when it comes to the knowledge of the proposer. The above statements give an idea as to the time by when revocation of offer and acceptance is possible. Thus, when an offer is easily revocable before it reaches the offeree, it is also revocable thereafter but before the acceptor posts off/transmits the acceptance. Accordingly, revocation of acceptance is possible before the acceptance comes to the knowledge of the proposer. These rules are categorically provided for with illustrations in section 5, CA 1872. [4] Some words on the rule of abidingness of acceptance must be......

...received by the other party, then the general postal rule cannot be applied. This general postal rule does not apply to offers or offer revocations as the acceptance is only effective when received. Case Example: Adams v Lindsell 2nd September: The defendant wrote a letter to the plaintiff on offering to sell him wool and requested the plaintiff to reply by post. 5th September: The plaintiff replied back. 8th September: The defendant sold the wool to another person as he did not receive any letter from the plaintiff. 9th September: Reply letter from the plaintiff reached the defendant on this date. Hence, the plaintiff sued the defendant. Judgement: Acceptance was effective when the letter was sent out and thus, there was a contract formed. Case Example: Byrne v Van Tienhoven 1st October: The defendant wrote a letter to the plaintiff on offering to sell him tin plates. 8th October: The defendant wrote another letter to the plaintiff on the offer revocation. 11th October: The plaintiff received the first letter by the defendant and accepted the offer by telegram. 15th October: The plaintiff accepted the offer by mail. 20th October: The plaintiff received the offer revocation letter. Hence, the plaintiff decided to sue the defendant. Judgement: The general postal rule does not apply to offer revocations, hence the revocation is not effective until it is received. The offer cannot be revoked as well after acceptance. Hence, the defendant was deemed to have......

Contractual Agreements

...far-fetched and thus not an offer. The offer by FT is clearly distinguished from this, and appeared to be serious, particularly given the large sum of money involved. Acceptance Acceptance is an unqualified assent to the terms of an offer by the offeree and must be unequivocal, unconditional and in terms, identical to the offer. We will determine this objectively; applying the test of whether a reasonable person would believe the other party is assenting to the exact terms of the offer. Lastly, acceptance must be communicated to the offeror, unless this has been dispensed with by the offeror. It must be ascertained to whether the mode of acceptance used by GL was sufficient and secondly whether GL accepted the offer prior to FT’s revocation. If the latter is false then it is most probable that a court would find that no contract was formed. i. Mode of acceptance: The mode of acceptance that took place in 2006 must firstly be examined to establish whether a legitimate contract has been formed. Where the offeror has not specified a mode of acceptance as the only mode of acceptance, other modes will be accepted so long as they are not disadvantageous to the offeror as held in Manchester v Diocesan (hereafter Manchester). It is a question of whether Mr Lo’s email to Mr Chonja at FT was a sufficient mode of communication in which to accept the offer in 2006. In Manchester, the offeror did not exclusively stipulate a mode of acceptance, but it was held that......

Postal Rule-Contract Law

...will not apply. To minimize the risk, the offeror can require actual receipt as a condition before being legally bound. The postal rule applies only to acceptance. Revocation is ineffective until communicated to the offeree, hence revocation by post is ineffective until the letter is actually received by the offeree. The implication of this is that it is possible for a letter of acceptance to be posted after a letter of revocation of the offer has been posted but before it is delivered, and acceptance will be complete at the time that the letter of acceptance was posted – which would rendered the offeror’s revocation inoperative. Analyzing the case: Mark, the offeror has impliedly nominates the post office as the means for which acceptance should be communicated and received. This was done when he sent his offer through the mail and also when he instructed Gillian that acceptance MUST be in writing. However the postal rule was eliminated when he stipulates that the acceptance must get to him by 10 am the next morning, else he would sell the car to someone else. He has therefore implied that actual receipt of the acceptance within a certain time frame would make it legally binding. Gillian’s acceptance was posted and received by Mark at 9 am Friday morning as stipulated. Mark however, has posted a letter of revocation of the offer, which Gillian received 8 am on Friday the same day he received her acceptance. Advice to Gillian: Gillian wouldn’t received any damages from......

Joeco. Risk of Loss; Revocation of Acceptance

...•JoeCo. recently made a relatively large sale of computers to a new customer, The Gamery. As part of the sale, the customer ordered 12 extremely fast and expensive ABC video adapters, which is not an item you regularly stock, so you would have to special order them. •At the time for shipment of the computers per the agreement, you still hadn’t received the adapters from your vendor. Per instructions from the customer, you went ahead and shipped the computers and were to ship the video adapters separately when you received them from your supplier. •When they came in, you packaged them all up and had them picked up by UBS (United Box Service) for delivery. That was two weeks ago and the customer has not yet received them. The customer is boiling mad that he hasn’t gotten the last of his order and is threatening to sue for breach of contract, to return the computers and to cancel the entire order. – Can the customer cancel the entire order? – It appears the adapters are lost. As between JoeCo. and The Gamery, who bears the loss? – What could JoeCo. do to protect itself in advance of this type of shipping situation happening again? Facts and issues: Identify the parties; JoeCo (seller) and The Gamery (buyer) USB (carrier) First issue: JoeCo jeopardize the entire order for some additional supply-the adapters- that he can’t stock or control. Second issue: It seems that JoeCo (seller) has breach the contract when he has not include the adapters at the time of......
