One of the most basic rules of law is that parties must do what they agreed to do in a contract. This rule allows business relationships to work smoothly in Manhattan and elsewhere. While most people do this most of the time, sometimes parties don’t do what they agreed to do. Performing parties don’t perform and paying parties don’t pay.
We recently told the story of a contract party who claimed that the other party failed to pay what it was supposed to under the contract. Some members of the creative team behind the “Walking Dead” TV show alleged that they were denied their share of the profits from the successful series. These people sued, alleging breach of contract. The defendant disputed the plaintiffs’ allegations, describing the allegations as baseless and opportunistic.
