Capacity of Parties
Edited by Professor Joseph M. Perillo
The chapter also discusses the limited contractual capacity of the mentally infirm, whose agreements are voidable. This class of people includes those who are insane, senile, mentally retarded, and those experiencing temporary delirium resulting from physical injuries, intoxication, or medication. The chapter discusses the various tests applied to test mental capacity and ability to comprehend the nature of agreements. The chapter also discusses restitution, liabilities for necessaries, avoidance and ratification, and exploitation of alcoholics and others.
Finally, the chapter discusses attempts by persons to contract with themselves. While this generally is not possible, an individual may contract with a group when he is also a member of the group.
Hailed as ''the greatest law book ever written," this venerable resource is one of the most cited and influential treatises in print.
