No, New York would have jurisdiction. NY CPLR § 302 (2012) (New York's "long-arm statute") states that: As to a cause of action arising from any of the acts enumerated in this section, a court may exercise personal jurisdiction over any non-domiciliary, or his executor or administrator, who in person or through an agent: transacts ...

Provincial jurisdiction may need to be specified. But in general, assuming you are not covered by a collective bargaining agreement, you can be terminated for any reason or even no reason, as long as the contract is followed, the actual or apparent reason is not discriminatory or otherwise illegal and the termination procedure meets the provincial employment ...

This is just saying that if they can’t host your event then the only remedy you get is your money back that your paid them (your deposit, advance payments, and of course your don’t owe final payments). It is there to make it clear that they are not responsible of any other money. What else might the client want them to refund? Other lost expenses. Non ...

Return it If you are unwilling to enter the contract then you can return the device for a refund.

It sounds like you may be conflating ownership and control. It's very common for an affiliate to have a contract with the parent company. These terms can be very detailed - it may give the parent company the right to sell the affiliates widgets, but not sprockets (as those are sold by another parent company). As such, you can't really measure "control&...

Why do we have different types of agreements like EULA (End User License Agreement) and Terms of Service and sometimes other licenses in a legal tab on a website? The names for these agreements describe the subject matter that they cover. They don't have any magical power. You could call an end-user license agreement something else that also describes its ...

A contract is an agreement that is enforcable by law All contracts are agreements; not all agreements are contracts. An agreement between a construction company and a government to build 45km of motorway is also a contract. If the construction company fails to build it or the government fails to pay legal consequences will follow. An agreement for you and I ...

An agreement is not necessarily a contract, but a contract is always an agreement. As coffee is a drink, you can call it a drink.

You're getting a "contradiction" because you're assuming the only transaction occurring is when you purchase the Apple computer. But, there are two separate transactions, or, in contract terms, two separate "bargained-for exchanges." The first is when you purchase and receive the computer, and the second is when you receive the right to ...

Note: As a jurisdiction is not specified, this answer assumes United States law throughout. OP's profile says they are in California, so this is hopefully correct. Copyright law You cannot transfer a copyright in an idea, because ideas are expressly excluded from copyright protection in 17 USC 102(b). So you can't have such a copyright in the first place. By ...

Should i sign a contract agreeing with an economical offer to work for a company before the last interview? No. Your thought that "i may not want to work with them" suggests that you would rather not bear the risk of mistake. Restatement (Second) of Contracts at § 154(b) explains the concept of bearing the risk of mistake. Quite the contrary, your ...

You have no legal right to a refund/rebate You are only entitled to a refund if there is a total and utter failure of consideration by the supplier - that is, they provided none of what they contracted to supply. They have provided the accommodation so there is no total and utter failure. However, because they did not provide everything that they were ...

A quick response is "ask your attorney" (which defeats the purpose of the question). The first thing to do is get an elementary understanding of the law, perhaps by studying the questions and answers on Law SE. Since wills are not contracts, you would learn that contract law is not an important issue (and eventually you could learn how it does ...

Generally, how can I protect me from this client and resolve that situation? At the outset, it is hard to assess the matter without knowing the relevant details of your contract. If you edit your post to incorporate the relevant portions of your contract(s)/agreement(s) with this client, I'll be happy to take a look at it and edit this answer. In and of ...

It could mean either, given the wording "Jones and Smith have the power to act on behalf of Omnicorp". You would have to derive the "joint agreement" conclusion from other parts of the contract. In general, "and means or, and vice versa, as required", and especially as required by other word in the contract ("they" vs. ...

The exact terms of the warranty are decisive. The term "oil changes" is unqualified, and therefore it encompasses all types of oil that are appropriate for the covered car. Once the warranty is purchased, the company is not allowed to qualify or restrict the scope of that contract. The company's mention of oil changes and other features as a ...

Parties to a contract may choose to have separate but related agreements, or to merge all their agreements into a single larger contract. (Licenses and user agreements and such are contracts, in general.) Having separate, more focused documents can help keep things clearer and more organized, if they are well-crafted. Some of the documents might only apply ...

What if we use these terms interchangably is there a legal problem? There is no legal problem. Those labels can be used interchangeably. The key point is that the conditions ought to be clear enough so that a reasonable person can ascertain them just from reading the document(s). Consolidating all the terms and conditions in one single document is better ...

That depends very much on exactly how the contract is written. It would be possible (albeit unusual) to create a contract such that Party 2's obligations come into force when condition A is met, but Party 1's obligations take effect only when condition B is met. For this to be valid, in a common-law jurisdiction,. there would need to be consideration for ...
