Well, I understand what context you're providing, but that's not the frame of reference Jones is speaking from when he says he wants to come to an agreement with Dana and get paid.HarthorneWingo wrote:GONYK wrote:HarthorneWingo wrote:
A promise for a promise can be a contract if one of the parties relied on that promise to their own detriment. It’s called “promissory estoppel.”
So, if Mr. White did indeed make that promise to Mr. Jones who then subsequently declines a huge offer from Bellator based on his reliance on White’s offer, then the conditions for a contract and breach thereof have been met.
So Dana better pay up, so Bones doesn't sue!
I only responded to your comment that this "wasn't a contract."
What happens after that is none of my concern.
Addendum: I will add that if Dana in fact made him a firm promise, and Jones did in fact pass up a lucrative offer from another organization, then definitely yes, Jones should sue.
There's no traditional fight contract in place.
