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)

Writing Requirement Recently Removed from Lead Sentence[edit]

As I was studying the recent diff showing reversion of the addition of an "in writing" requirement to the lead sentence, I was tempted to put it back in, with a clarification about enforceability. I then saw that the article already covered this. For the person who edited in good faith to add that requirement, keep in mind that a lead sentence is supposed to summarize, as best it can, the article's "bottom line." While it is absolutely true that some some contracts must be in writing to be enforceable, it is not true that any contract must be in writing per se, nor is a reference to the writing requirement necessary to the overall definition of contract as such. This is why the edit was reverted. RiverStyx23{submarinetarget} 13:42, 9 February 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)
