The Law of the Turkey

Turkeys_1_1I'd hazard a guess that nearly all contract law concepts can be learned with turkey cases (and one chicken case... and maybe one cow case). In the spirit of Thanksgiving, some turkey cases here (In the U.S., this time of year is rough for the turkeys. It is also likely a rough time for purveyors of turkeys, especially if their contracts do not go as planned. Thanksgiving 1917 was certainly difficult for Jacobsen-Reimers Co, a California company. . .) and here (George R. Whaley had been a poultry farmer for some 35 years. For 20 of those years, under oral contract, Whaley supplied turkeys to H&H Poultry Co., a poultry processor. . .).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
