This Week's New York Court of Appeals Oral Arguments

CrtsideWednesday and Thursday of this week, the New York Court of Appeals will hear oral argument in two interesting contracts cases.

On Wednesday, the court will hear oral argument in Matter of the Estate of Wirth, which addresses the enforceability of a promise to make a charitable contribution, and sounds a lot like Cardozo’s Allegheny College decision.  A previous post about the case: here.

On Thursday, the court will hear oral argument in Srour v. Dwelling Quest Corp.  This case considers when a real estate broker’s job is fully performed (thus entitling the broker to a fee).  A previous post about the case: here.
