Read through the excerpts from the decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals in Able Demolition v. City of Pontiac. After reading and thinking about the Court’s decision, answer the following questions:
• In your opinion, was the result reached by the courts “fair” in this case? Would you have ruled the same way as the trial judge and the appellate courts in this case? Why or why not? Explain your answers thoroughly.
• How do you think Able got itself in this mess? Do you think it just ignored the requirements of the contract, or was something else at play? If you think something other than ignorance must have been involved, what was it?
