Awww, thanks, Kelly.

Sands - there's too much bull and drama there for me.  Please tell your boy HBCU to keep me out of y'all's *&^% over there.

it ain't him as much as its those other wack cats on there. there are a lot who are still positive but I think you let some of the negative cats get to you, namely the females.  I need another voice of reason

Well good luck to everybody taking the Con Law final.  Hopefully if anybody makes any major breakthroughs that would be beneficial for the final we can post them here, or at the very least hash out some issues.

So...1000 concurring and dissenting supreme court opinions later here we are at Finals and I'm still not sure what at the hype is around the "trigger stage" of analysis.  Somebody give me a rational basis for this class b/c its not passing the strict scrutiny test.

How's everybody else finding it?

I don't know about the rest of you, but every now and again I have to come up for air, take a look around and realize "wow, I'm a law student."

Jen - I concur with what Coregram said.  The UCC example is a good illustration of how partial performance can negate the need to have a K in writing.  However pay attention to the part where he says if you work for 2 years on an oral agreement, and get fired, all you have proven is the agreement for 2 years, even if it was supposed to be for 5.  This is Quantum Meruit.  See Britton v. Turner 6 N.H. 481.

You asked about reliance or restitution damages for the guy who gets fired before his K is up.  Here's the tricky part.  Reliance or Restitution would theoretically make sense because you can argue that the guy relied on the 5 year K to his detriment and blah blah blah.  However, be careful with that.  What a lot of law school students fail to realize is that employment K's (whether Oral or Written) are at-will employment K's.  Meaning, a company has a legal entitlement to fire the employee (technically breaching the K) at any time without consequence, so long as they have paid the employee up until that time of termination.
