Excessive and improper use of Bold in first two lede sentence[edit]

There are several words in bold-face in the first sentence of the lede, however, only two of these could qualify for proper use of bold-face in Wikipedia articles ("contract" and "agreement"). The 10 other uses of bold-face violates the Wikipedia Manual of Style. See MOS:BOLD and MOS:BOLDTITLE for details on how bold-face should be used. The words and phrases currently in bold-face which should not be in bold-face (ten of the twelve, currently) should be fixed. I will not do it myself — at this particular moment — in case someone wishes to give an argument against my above assertions, but I may do so in the future if someone has not done so by then. — al-Shimoni (talk) 01:21, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

"Hadley v. Baxendale "[edit]

The section on damages says: "Hadley v. Baxendale establishes general and consequential damages." This isn't true. I will amend the HvB reference, and leave the other stuff intact. Arrivisto (talk) 18:40, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

European / Continental contract law[edit]

If someone wanted to flesh out that side of this page, there is this Comparative Contract Law American and European by Gregory Maggs up online. II | (t - c) (Jan. 18, 2016 [1]).

ImperfectlyInformed I just went to the article because I thought I remembered seeing a note on one of our contract articles (e.g. Implied-in-fact contract) tagged saying it was too focused on U.S. contract law. I just came across the same WP:RS you point out, and was about to add it, but not really sure how we should go about that. I'm no expert in contract law and don't want to mess up what is already there by adding it. --David Tornheim (talk) 21:11, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Just be bold and add it! :) II | (t - c) 17:51, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Mistake -- new edits[edit]

Hi 129.94.8.55. Thanks for your these edits [2]. I noticed that you added in cases from Australia, and I saw another case mentioned was from England higher up in the section. I am in the United States. I have little knowledge of how contract law varies between the various nations. Do you? Have you considered that in making the additions? Do you think there might be a problem in having a single article about contracts that covers various countries? My book says that the importance and enforcement of contracts varies widely between countries, citing this article. --David Tornheim (talk) 03:12, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
