Read Business Case 22-1, “Anticipatory Repudiation,” located on page 423 of your course textbook. Explain whether Flint Hills had a right to demand assurance of JAG’s title to its product, and if so, whether Flint Hills acted reasonably in exercising that right. Your post should be at least 100 words in length.
22–1. Anticipatory Repudiation. Moore contracted in writing to sell her 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe to Hammer for $18,500. Moore agreed to deliver the car on Wednesday, and Hammer promised to pay the $18,500 on the following Fri- day. On Tuesday, Hammer informed Moore that he would not be buying the car after all. By Friday, Hammer had changed his mind again and tendered $18,500 to Moore. Moore, although she had not sold the car to another party, refused the tender and refused to deliver. Hammer claimed that Moore had breached their contract. Moore contended that Hammer’s repudiation released her from her duty to perform under the contract. Who is correct, and why?
