A twenty-one-year-old college senior loved cars. He worked long hours after school to make the payments on his car. A bank had extended him a two-year loan with no pre-payment penalty. The student fell behind in his payments, prompting the bank to write him a letter stating, “If payments are not resumed by January 15, we will be forced to repossess your car.” The student dropped out of school to work longer hours at the local fast food restaurant so that he would be able to resume his payments. On January 6, the student’s uncle, a fifty-five-year-old real estate tycoon and bachelor, discovered the student’s plans to pay his debt. He called the student on the telephone and said, “I can’t let my favorite nephew mess up his life. If you stay in school and quit your part-time job, I will assume all payments on your car and provide you with $200 spending money every month until next May.”
The student agreed to quit his job and stay in school. The uncle called the bank and left a message with the receptionist stating, “I will pay you all the money the student owes and assume all his future payments if you guarantee not to repossess his car. If the bank does not return my call, I will assume he has accepted the offer.” The bank did not respond to the uncle’s call, did not repossess the car, and cashed the uncle’s checks over the next six months.
The student drove off the side of a winding mountain road four months before his graduation from college. The student died in the crash and the car was reduced to ashes. The bank sued the uncle for the remaining payments due on the car. The student’s estate brought suit against the uncle for six remaining monthly payments of $200 spending money promised to the student.
If the uncle argues that the bank’s original agreement to give the student a two-year loan to buy the car was void because it was oral, will the court rule in the uncle’s favor on this issue?CorrectIncorrect
