The Rosenbergs sold their Dairy Queen franchise to Mary
Pratt. The contract required Pratt to pay most of the purchase price over a
15-year period. Two years later, Pratt assigned her rights and delegated her
duties under the sales contract to Son, Inc. The Rosenbergs agreed to the new
arrangement. But the agreement made no mention of discharging Pratt from any
further liability on the contract. When Son failed to pay, the Rosenbergs sued
Mary Pratt. What result? 5. Raymond and Connie Loftus hired American Realty Co.
to manage and sell their vacant home. ARC secured a buyer. Prior to closing,
ARC hired Fitzpatrick to light the home’s gas water heater. During the
lighting, Fitzpatrick burned the house down. The Loftuses argued that ARC
improperly delegated the duty to Fitzpatrick and that the realty company should
be liable. What result?
