Daniel, while under the influence of alcohol, agreed to sell his used automobile to Belinda for $13,000
Daniel, while under the influence of alcohol, agreed to sell his used automobile to Belinda for $13,000. The next morning, when Belinda went to Daniel’s house with the $13,000 in cash, Daniel stated that he did not remember the transaction but that “a deal is a deal.” One week after completing the sale, Daniel decides that he wishes to avoid the contract. What result?
Individual D decided to sell their automobile to Individual B while intoxicated. Individual D would have had the provision to avoid the contract if they had made it clear when Individual B brought the cash to Individual D, when they were fully conscious. But Individual D decided to stick to the contract. This decision was made in full consciousness. So, Individual D cannot opt out from the contract.
Individual D must comply with the contract. Even though the initial decision to sell the automobile took place when Individual D was intoxicated, they confirmed to the contract of selling the automobile again when they were fully conscious.
