Mark is going to fly to Denver on Friday and spend the weekend...

  • Mark is going to fly to Denver on Friday and spend the weekend looking for a house to buy.
  • On Wednesday, he sends the following email to Polly: "I will pay you $500 IF you will pick me up from the airport on Friday at 1:00 PM and drive me around to look for houses."
  • Polly emails him back, promising that she will do as Mark asks.
  • When Mark arrives on Friday, Polly is not at the airport, so Mark rents a car.
  • The next day, Saturday, Polly comes to Mark's hotel and says she is ready to drive him around and asks for the $500. Mark refuses.
  • Polly sues Mark for breach of contract.

Which of the following is the most likely outcome of that lawsuit?

 

A. Mark will win -- because they had a bilateral contract, and Polly breached it when she was not at the airport to pick him up on Friday.

 

B. Polly will win -- because her email back to Mark was an effective acceptance of his unilateral offer.

 

C. Polly will win -- because she knew Mark was flying on Spirit Airlines, thus it was reasonable for her to think it would arrive a day late.

 

D. Mark will win -- because Polly never accepted his unilateral offer.
