a). Mrs. Shah tells Tania, “When you turn 25 in four years, I will give you a car worth $25,000.” The four years passes, and Mom refuses to make good on her promise, and Tania sues for breach of contract.
Who will prevail? Why or why not? Is the promise legally enforceable?
b). Mom now promises Tania that she will give her the car worth $25,000 if Tania will promise to try and stop getting repeatedly audited by the IRS, give up one of her businesses and stop wearing heels for one year. Tania tries to be good with her taxes, gave up her underground gambling business, and wore (and this was the most horrific) flats for one year. Mom then refuses to pay, because she claimed those were all things Tania should have been doing anyways and Tania sues for breach of contract.

Mom says to Tania “if you can refrain from eating an entire box of Girl Scout cookies on a daily basis for one week, I will pay you $100.” Tania, despite near-death withdrawal symptoms, refrains from eating a box of Girl Scout cookies a day for one week.
Was there consideration for Mom’s agreement to pay Tania $100 for refraining from eating cookies?
Would your answer change it turns out that Tania was planning to give up eating said cookies even if Mom had not asked her?Grading can be reviewed and adjusted.Grading can be reviewed and adjusted.
Douglas, a famous fashion designer, gives Shah the exclusive rights to sell products made from his “Mad Men” design collection. Shah promised to pay royalties on any product sold.
However, the agreement does not expressly require Shah to make any sales. Douglas violates his agreement with Shah by letting Gill sell his designs too. Shah sues Douglas, who defends on the ground that Shah did not really promise to do anything, because for all she knew, Shah was keeping all the clothing for herself, and there is thus no consideration for Douglas’ promise of exclusivity.
Was there agreement supported by consideration? Who wins?Grading can be reviewed and adjusted.Grading can be reviewed and adjusted.
