ZEHMER SUPREME COURT OF APPEALS OF VIRGINIA 196 VA. 493, 84 S.E.2D 516 (1954) Plaintiffs W. O. and J. C. Lucy had wanted to purchase Ferguson Farm from the Zehmers for at least eight years. One night, Lucy stopped by the establishment the Zehmers operated and said that he bet Zehmer wouldn’t accept $50,000 for the place. Zehmer replied that he would, but he bet that Lucy wouldn’t pay $50,000 for it. Over the course of the evening, the parties drank whiskey and engaged in casual conversation, with the talk repeatedly returning to the sale of Ferguson Farm. Eventually Lucy got Zehmer to draw up a contract for the sale of the farm for $50,000. When Lucy later attempted to enforce the agreement, Zehmer refused to complete the sale, arguing that he had been drunk and that the agreement to sell the property had been made in jest. Lucy sued to enforce the agreement. The trial court found for the defendants and the plaintiffs appealed. JUSTICE BUCHANAN If it be assumed, contrary to what we think the evidence shows, that Zehmer was jesting about selling his farm to Lucy and that the transaction was intended by him to be a joke, nevertheless the evidence shows that Lucy did not so understand it but considered it to be a serious business transaction and the contract to be binding on the Zehmers as well as on himself. The very next day he arranged with his brother to put up half the money and take a half interest in the land. The day after that he employed an attorney to examine the title. The next night, Tuesday, he was back at Zehmer’s place and there Zehmer told him for the first time, Lucy said, that he wasn’t going to sell, and he told Zehmer, “You know you sold that place fair and square.” After receiving the report from his attorney that the title was good, he wrote to Zehmer that he was ready to close the deal. Not only did Lucy actually believe, but the evidence shows he was warranted in believing, that the contract represented a serious business transaction and a good faith sale and purchase of the farm. In the field of contracts, as generally elsewhere, “We must look to the outward expression of a person as manifesting his intention rather than to his secret and unexpressed intention. ‘The law imputes to a person an intention corresponding to the reasonable meaning of his words and acts.’” Page 348At no time prior to the execution of the contract had Zehmer indicated to Lucy by word or act that he was not in earnest about selling the farm. They had argued about it and discussed its terms, as Zehmer admitted, for a long time. Lucy testified that if there was any jesting it was about paying $50,000 that night. The contract and the evidence show that he was not expected to pay the money that night. Zehmer said that after the writing was signed he laid it down on the counter in front of Lucy. Lucy said Zehmer handed it to him. In any event there had been what appeared to be a good faith offer and a good faith acceptance, followed by the execution and apparent delivery of a written contract. Both said that Lucy put the writing in his pocket and then offered Zehmer $5 to seal the bargain. Not until then, even under the defendants’ evidence, was anything said or done to indicate that the matter was a joke. Both of the Zehmers testified that when Zehmer asked his wife to sign he whispered that it was a joke so Lucy wouldn’t hear and that it was not intended that he should hear. The mental assent of the parties is not requisite for the formation of a contract. If the words or other acts of one of the parties have but one reasonable meaning, his undisclosed intention is immaterial except when an unreasonable meaning which he attaches to his manifestations is known to the other party. The law, therefore, judges of an agreement between two persons exclusively from those expressions of their intentions which are communicated between them. An agreement or mutual assent is of course essential to a valid contract but the law imputes to a person an intention corresponding to the reasonable meaning of his words and acts. If his words and acts, judged by a reasonable standard, manifest an intention to agree, it is immaterial what may be the real but unexpressed state of his mind. So a person cannot set up that he was merely jesting when his conduct and words would warrant a reasonable person in believing that he intended a real agreement…. Whether the writing signed by the defendants and now sought to be enforced by the complainants was the result of a serious offer by Lucy and a serious acceptance by the defendants, or was a serious offer by Lucy and an acceptance in secret jest by the defendants, in either event it constituted a binding contract of sale between the parties. Defendants contend further, however, that even though a contract was made, equity should decline to enforce it under the circumstances. These circumstances have been set forth in detail above. They disclose some drinking by the two parties but not to an extent that they were unable to understand fully what they were doing. There was no fraud, no misrepresentation, no sharp practice and no dealing between unequal parties. The farm had been bought for $11,000 and was assessed for taxation at $6,300. The purchase price was $50,000. Zehmer admitted that it was a good price. There is in fact present in this case none of the grounds usually urged against specific performance. In the case of Lucy v. Zehmer,
In Week 6, you had the opportunity to critique five different change management models in the form of Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, Threats, (SWOT) analyses. For your final assignment, compose a paper in which you evaluate a single change management model by explaining the history and progression. Also, be sure to include the researcher(s) of the original model and the year the model was introduced. Your paper should be well organized, using headings and subheadings where necessary and appropriate transitions between sections. Support your paper with at least 8-articles published in peer-reviewed journals. You may use articles that you referred to in previous assignments in this course when appropriate. Length: 12-pages, not including title or reference pages References: Include a minimum of 8 scholarly references.
Review each of your program learning outcomes. How are these competencies assessed and valued in your chosen profession? Reference the current professional literature as well as your professional standards to support your points. Reflecting on your course of study, which courses have been most important in helping you develop and refine the competencies required for success in your future professional pursuits? Identify one or more area of gaps between your professional standards and your course of study and identify resources that may help you to close this gap in learning. Your initial post (due on Day 3) should be at least 350 words and should reference at least two different academic sources.

Bus 160 – Individual Paper (40 points) Each person will submit a 5 page written paper on a sub-topic within a chapter. Cover page does not count. Pick a topic of interest and read about it in the book. Then, do further research in the online library or web-search. Evidence of research beyond the book is required and should be documented in the bibliography with a minimum of 3 references including the book. Use APA format and double spaced with 11 or 12 point font. Page 6 is your Bibliography. There are many interesting topics and sub-topics in the book. Pick something you are interested in that will serve you for the future. Study that topic in the book first and if interested in continuing do further research by finding two more references (e.g. articles, books, websites). It’s generally helpful to create an outline before you start writing. That way you can complete a paragraph or section at a time. One way to do this is to state the theory first and any research you were able to uncover. Be sure to reference anything you copy from another source by making a citation in your paper i.e. (George & Jones, 2012, pg 38). Then, you could relate this topic to your personal experience or how you might use this knowledge in the future. There are too many sub-topics to list but here are a few: • Motivation • Perception • Communication • Teams • Careers • Learning • Personality • Power • Decision Making • Ethics • Change • Org Design or structure • Stress You can also add your own experience about this subject
