#consideration #contract
Question
Facts: Under the terms of a contract by which Cremer was to deliver wheat to Huyton, Huyton was required to pay Cremer on presentation of documents in a particular form. Huyton accepted delivery of the goods but his bank refused to make payment to Cremer on the basis that the documents were not in the approved form. Before going to arbitration, the matter was resolved by Huyton agreeing to pay Cremer on condition that Cremer gave up its claims to various shipping expenses that Cremer would normally have been able to claim back from Huyton. Cremer later contended that it had entered into the agreement on grounds of economic duress. It was held that even if Cremer could show illegitimate pressure (which was doubted) it could not show that the pressure was a significant cause of its entering into the agreement. There was therefore no duress.
Answer
Huyton SA v Peter Cremer GmbH & Co [1999] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 620

#crime #defences #law
Question
The defence of duress is only available where there is a nexus between the threat and the crime.
[ case ] FACTS: Cole pleaded the defence of duress to robbing two building societies on the basis that he had been threatened by moneylenders to whom he was in debt. HELD: The Court of Appeal held that a plea of duress was not available as the moneylenders had not stipulated that he commit robbery to meet their demands.

'[T]he defence of duress by threats can only apply when the offence charged … is the very offence which was nominated by the person making the threat, i.e. when the accused was required by the threat to commit the offence charged.' (Per Simon Brown LJ.)

Answer
R v Cole [1994] Crim LR 582 (CA)

The percentage of stocks that go up in a portfolio does not determine its performance, it is the dollar change in the portfolio. A few stocks going up or down dramatically will often have a much greater impact on portfolio performance than the batting average.

ia histórica inigualable. Pero existe una razón todavía más válida que justifica la importancia del estudio del Derecho Romano, todavía practicado en muchos países europeos y extracomunitarios. <span>Entre los derechos de la antigüedad, el romano fue el único que fue objeto de elaboración científica. En realidad, tenemos amplios testimonios de otros ordenamientos antiguos, como el de Babilonia Page 18 o el griego; pero sólo en roma existió una clase de intérpretes del derecho (los juriconsultos) capaces de dar vida a un sistema y de elevar el estudio jurídico a la categoría de ciencia. Partiendo, de hecho, de las normas individuales reguladoras de los casos concretos, la jurisprudencia romana obtuvo los principios en los que estos se inspiraban y así, procediendo siem
