The doctor sued White for the value of the lenses. Will the doctor be able to recover the money from White? Explain.
Carol White ordered a $225 pair of contact lenses through an optometrist. White, an emancipated minor, paid $100 by check and agreed to pay the remaining $125 at a later time. The doctor ordered the lenses, incurring a debt of $110. After the lenses were ordered, White called to cancel her order and stopped payment on the $100 check. The lenses could be used by no one but White. The doctor sued White for the value of the lenses. Will the doctor be able to recover the money from White? Explain.
Evidences to support the decisions are as follows:
Individual C is a minor. Individual C can disaffirm the contract as Individual C is an emancipated minor who has the right to avoid any liability that arises from contracts.
According to the obligations for required clause contact lenses, the contract is deemed required, the minor cannot disaffirm the contract, and the agreed value is a fair amount. The Object CL are also designed to suit Individual C, which cannot be used by others. Object CL will become useless if they are not accepted by Individual C as they cannot be sold to anyone else. For this reason, Individual C has to pay for the object as per the agreement.
The probable answers for the question are as follows:
Decision in the favor of Individual C
Decision in the favor of Professional D
