Michele S. Holder Bus Law 125/5086 May 9, 2012 Contract Assignment I have elected to analyze a binding contract between Godina Videography & Photography and a client for the purpose of photography services. The contract is divided into 13 individual sections that make up the terms and conditions of the agreement. The section entitled Exclusivity, states that Godina shall be the sole photographer “retained by the client for the event.” This section also allows for family and friends of the client to “photograph the event, for noncommercial purposes, provided that such person or persons do not interfere with the photographer’s duties.” The next section, entitled Photographer, informs the client that a photographer, and if necessary an assistant, will be assigned “exclusively for client’s event.” Further, it requires the client to provide a meal for the photographer and assistant during the course of the event. The Illness and Unexpected Events section explains under what circumstances or conditions Godina would not be liable to the client should they be unable to complete performance. These circumstances include war, riots, fire, acts of God, and earthquakes. In addition, this section grants Godina permission to delegate their contractual duties to another professional photographer should they become ill. If a substitute photographer cannot be “assigned,” the client is entitled to have fees returned. The Liquidated Damages section states that should any photographs become lost or damaged due to the negligence of Godina, the client will receive $1.00 per affected photo as payment. Information regarding deposit and payment requirements is discussed in the Non-Refundable Reservation Fees and Payment Schedule sections. A $500.00 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a photographer for a scheduled event, with the remaining balance of the contract due 1 month prior to the event. This contract allows the client to “upgrade” their photography package up until the day of the scheduled even under Change in Date, Time, or Package Selection. In addition, the client may change the time and/or date of their event, but should this change “conflict” with the photographers “existing schedule,” Godina may terminate the contract, and the client will lose their non-refundable deposit. The Completion of Final Product section informs the client that the final product takes 9 to 12 weeks to complete from the date of event. The section entitled Venue, Attorney’s Fees and Applicable Law discusses legal options should a dispute arise concerning the contract. The contract stipulates that “any court action” arising from this contract should be brought in Orange County, California, with Godina and the client responsible for their own attorney’s fees. Moreover, should any part of the contract be deemed “invalid, illegal or unenforceable,” it will not affect the “legality and enforceability” of the remainder of the contract. The Publicity Rights/Promotional Use of Images section gives permission to use the client’s images produced during the event. The section entitled Modifications states that the signed contract represents the “sole and exclusive agreement” between Godina Videography & Photography and the client. It further contends that any expressed or implied warranties are included in the signed contract, and any modifications “must be in writing” and “signed by the party against which the enforcement of such writing is sought. The Creative Clause reiterates that Godina is the “exclusive official photographer retained” for the event. In addition, Godina 1 has full creative control, and the client is responsible for ensuring that there is nothing concealing the view of the bride and groom during shooting. The final section, Breakdown of Fees and Payment Schedule, lays out the total package price and includes the event date along with a signature section for both the client and Godina Videography & Photography. The Godina contract for photography services includes a Delegation Clause in section 3. Miller and Hollowell define delegation as, “The transfer of a contractual duty to a third party. The party delegating the duty (the delegator) to the third party (the delegate) is still obliged to perform on the contract if the delegate fails to perform” (p.187). The contract states, “In the event of any unanticipated photographer illness, Godina Videography & Photography shall make reasonable efforts to substitute another competent professional.” Therefore, should the photographer, who was assigned to the client’s event be unable to complete performance due to illness, Godina would make a “reasonable” effort to find a comparable photographer to perform the service, thereby delegating their duties. In a case where another photographer is unavailable, all fees paid by the client will be returned to him or her, and Godina claims no “further liability” in regards to the contract. Godina Videography & Photography also includes a Liquidated Damages Clause in section 4 of their contract. Liquidated damages is defined as, “An amount, stipulated in the contract, that the parties to a contract believe to be a reasonable estimation of the damages that will occur in the event of a breach (Miller & Hollowell, p. 202).” The contract stipulates that should any photographs become damaged or lost because of Godina’s “negligence or other unintentional conduct,” the client will receive $1.00 per photograph. For example, if Godina took 300 photos with a digital camera at client A’s wedding and subsequently lost the camera before printing or uploading the photos, Godina would pay $300.00 in liquidated damages to client A. Section 9 of the contract entitled Venue, Attorney’s Fees and Applicable Law, contains a clause that recognizes arbitration as an acceptable process to resolve any dispute that may arise from this contract. Arbitration is one of several forms of alternative dispute resolution. The PowerPoint slides for Chapter 3 of Business Law defines alternative dispute resolution as, “Any other formal or informal process for settling disputes without going to trial.” Arbitration is generally more time and cost effective than litigation, therefore making it “less stressful.” In arbitration, a “neutral third party arbitrator” makes a binding decision based on the disagreement submitted by the parties (Currier & Eimermann, p. 100). For example, if Godina Videography & Photography agreed to shoot client A’s wedding but subsequently forgot to assign a photographer to the event, leaving client A without a photographer, client A may decide to seek damages. Client A has an option to go through the traditional litigation process or she may choose arbitration, which is faster and cheaper than litigation (PowerPoint slides). Godina and client A would submit their arguments to the arbitrator, who would then make a decision that would be binding on both parties (PowerPoint slides). 2 Works Cited Currier, K., & Eimermann, T.E.

However, under no circumstances shall Client be permitted to change its selection to a lower-priced package. In case of a change in the time or date of the Event, Godina Videography & Photography shall make reasonable efforts to accommodate the change. However, if the new time or date conflicts with Godina Video Productions’ existing schedule, Godina Videography & Photography reserves the right to terminate the Agreement. In the event of such termination, Client shall forfeit any previous non-refundable deposits. 8. COMPLETION OF FINAL PRODUCT: The entire editing process, from time of scheduling to receipt of the final product is normally 9 to 12 weeks, at which time Client will receive the final product of the Event. 9.

In any action, arbitration or other judicial, quasi-judicial or extra-judicial proceeding related to any dispute arising from this Agreement, each party to this Agreement shall bear their own attorney’s fees. In case any provision of this Agreement shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severable from the remainder of this Agreement and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not, in any way, be affected or impaired thereby.

A mechanics’ lien is a claim, like a mortgage or home equity loan, made against your property and recorded with the county recorder. Even if you pay your contractor in full, unpaid subcontractors, suppliers, and laborers who helped to improve your property may record mechanics’ liens and sue you in court to foreclose the lien. If a court finds the lien is valid, you could be forced to pay twice or have a court officer sell your home to pay the lien. Liens can also affect your credit. To preserve their right to record a lien, each subcontractor and material supplier must provide you with a document called a ’20-day Preliminary Notice.’ This notice is not a lien. The purpose of the notice is to let you know that the person who sends you the notice has the right to record a lien on your property if he or she is not paid. BE CAREFUL. The Preliminary Notice can be sent up to 20 days after the subcontractor starts work or the supplier provides material. This can be a big problem if you pay your contractor before you have received the Preliminary Notices. You will not get Preliminary Notices from your prime contractor or from laborers who work on your project. The law assumes that you already know they are improving your property. PROTECT YOURSELF FROM LIENS. You can protect yourself from liens by getting a list from your contractor of all the subcontractors and material suppliers that work on your project. Find out from your contractor when these subcontractors started work and when these suppliers delivered goods or materials. Then wait 20 days, paying attention to the Preliminary Notices you receive. PAY WITH JOINT CHECKS. One way to protect yourself is to pay with a joint check. When your contractor tells you it is time to pay for the work of the subcontractor or supplier who has provided you with a Preliminary Notice, write a joint check payable to both the contractor and the subcontractor or material supplier. For other ways to prevent liens, visit CSLB’s Web site at wee.cslb.ca.gov or call CSLB at 800-321-CSLB (2752). REMEMBER, IF YOU DO NOTHING, YOU RISK HAVING A LIEN PLACED ON YOUR HOME. This can mean that you may have to pay twice, or fact the forced sale of your home to pay what you owe. ___________________________ Owner ________________________ Date Page 13 of 14 BORGERDING CONSTRUCTION , INC. 850 n. 4TH St., El Cajon, CA 92019 (619) 504-0524 (619) 328-0316 Fax Initial _____ _____ CONTRACT CHANGE ORDER NO: _____ PROJECT:________________________________.

Contract Assignment
Institutional affiliation
I have chosen to analyze a binding contract between managers and unarmed professional
combatants called ‘’contestants’’ to provide remunerable contests and exhibitions. The contract
terms are constructed according to state laws of Nevada and Nevada Athletic Commission
(NAC) which also acts as the ‘watchdog’.
The contract is divided into 19 individual sections which analyze the agreements reached
between the parties after considering their mutual covenants. The first section definitions provide
that the meaning, application, and usage of words and terms used is according to Nevada
Revised Statutes (‘NRS’) and Nevada administration Code (‘NAC’). Next is engagement which
requires that the manager engages the sole professional services of the contestant to take part in
all unarmed combat contests, give exhibitions of unarmed combat as well training exercises.
Duties of the contestant explain that the contestant places him/herself in any time or place under
the manager as well as using his best ability and skill as required by the manager. With this they
are required to take part in unarmed combat, training and excise services at demand by the
manager at any place or time as directed regardless of any limitation such as noise etc. also
explains that the con...
