FAQ: “Why Do I Need A Contract?”

How do you know whether or not you need a written contract?

First, depending on where you live, laws require that certain types of contracts be in writing in order to be valid. For example, if a contract can not be completed within one year, or a contract to buy or sell real estate may need to be in writing to be enforceable. Make an appointment with a business lawyer in your state to find out what your state requires.

Secondly, getting a written contract that outlines the agreed upon terms and conditions may help if there is a dispute later on down the road. A written contract defines the obligations of the parties. This can prevent a party from attempting to back out of the contract or saying that they agreed to different terms and conditions than you think.

Red Bull Settles Lawsuit for 13 Million

Red Bull recently settled a 2013 Class Action lawsuit for 13 million. The cause of action? Because drinking red bull did not give its customers wings.

The lawsuit against Red Bull, led by Benjamin Careathers, claimed that consumers of the drink did not benefit from any mental or physical enhancements, though the product states in its advertisement that it “gives you wings.”

A Class Action lawsuit is a suit where a group of people, under similar circumstances, sues another party, which is usually a corporation. A Class Action can have numerous benefits, including lowering the cost of litigation and improving the efficiency of the courts. Additionally, it is a method used to attempt to control the class of people that the Defendant is a part of. However, Class Actions have several criticisms. A major critique is that they undermine the public’s perception of the court system.

Denver Judge Temporarily Blocks Colorado’s Amazon Tax Law

“A Denver judge has dealt a blow to Colorado’s bid to tax online purchases, granting a request to temporarily block a 2010 law intended to encourage big e-tailers, like Amazon, to start collecting the state’s sales tax.

Denver District Court Judge Morris Hoffman’s ruling on the Direct Marketing Association’s request for preliminary injunction prevents the state from enforcing a law that imposes extensive reporting requirements on retailers that don’t charge Colorado customers the state’s 2.9 percent sales tax.”
