bus115 week 4 discussion

Pedro is jogging in the park in his neighborhood and notices signs posted on trees. The next time he passes by one of the signs, he decides to take a breather and read what is being posted. The sign says lost dog and has a picture and name of the dog. The sign says, “I’ll pay $750 to anyone who returns my lost dog” and also provides the phone number and email address of the owner. Pedro takes a screen shot of the posted note. When Pedro gets home, he shows the screen shot to his friend Briana and Briana then asks Pedro to text her that screen shot. Briana and Pedro agree that if either of them find the dog and return it to the owner, they would split the reward 50/50. It just so happens that Briana finds the dog and follows the instructions (exactly as specified on the reward sign) to return the dog and collect the reward. When she delivers the dog back to the owner, the owner of the dog asks Briana how she knew of the reward. Briana mentioned her friend Pedro showed her the posted note. The owner said that since she did not directly know about the reward sign as this is now secondhand knowledge, they did not have a contract and refused to pay her the $750. Briana then sues the owner of the dog.

Answer:

In this scenario, Briana could potentially have a legal claim against the owner of the dog for breach of contract, specifically under the doctrine of promissory estoppel. Although Briana did not directly see the reward sign herself, she learned of its contents through Pedro, who had observed the sign in the park. Briana and Pedro had a clear agreement to split the reward if either of them found and returned the dog. This agreement constitutes a contract, even if it was based on secondhand knowledge of the reward sign.

Promissory estoppel may apply here because Briana relied on the promise of the reward in deciding to search for and return the dog. She and Pedro had a mutual understanding and agreement regarding the reward, which influenced Briana’s actions. By finding and returning the dog, Briana fulfilled her part of the agreement, and the owner should be estopped from denying the existence of the reward or reneging on the promise to pay it.

Furthermore, Briana’s actions can be seen as providing consideration for the contract, as she expended time and effort to locate and return the lost dog based on the promise of the reward. Therefore, Briana may have a valid legal claim to enforce the agreement and seek the $750 reward from the owner of the dog.
