Agency I. Forms of Business Organizations: a.

Sole Proprietorship: you are liable for everything on your own: you are responsible for raising capital, if anyone is injured or torts or employees, paying bills, personally liable to creditors i. Agency Law b. General Partnership: more stable than agency; firm- form of business relation that has a temporal dimension, social identity & a separate pool of business assets i. Partnership & Agency Law c. Corporations: most stable i. Corporate & Agency Law II. Business Organization Theory: a. Coase: there are firms b/c of transaction costs; firms come into existence when costs of command & control are less than market transaction costs; firms exist when it is more efficient for a business entity to organize around a command function b. Costs associated with command & control structures (i.e. organization in firms) i. Agency Costs (to the extent that the incentives of the agent differ from the incentives of the principal- Berle & Means believe the market for corporate control in a publicly held corporation will eliminate agency costs 1. Monitoring: costs to ensure agency loyalty & making sure the agent is doing what he is supposed to do 2. Bonding: Costs that agents spend to show owners their reliability; costs of developing mechanisms to make the agent follow the principal’s objectives 3. Residual Loss: costs that are left from differences of interest after monitoring and bonding casts are occurred ii. Agents have less incentive to work as hard for you as you would iii. Resolution: bond their interests to your interests (make them care about the quality of their output) OR oversight III. Section 1 of RS Agency: Agency is a fiduciary relationship that arises from: a. The manifestation of consent by Principal (P) to Agent (A) that A shall act i. On Ps behalf, and ii. Subject to Ps control, and iii. A’s consent so to act b. PAT Triangle: Core of the agency relationship: Agent can bind Principal to a Third party c. Parties cannot disclaim agency by ―formal consent‖ IV. Generally: a. Agency is terminable at will- can be ended at any time by either P or A b. May be able to imply a term V. Jenson Farms v. Cargill: Farmers (T) are suing Cargill (P) on the theory that the local grain operator who failed to pay T is just an agent of P; A was financed by P and they entered into a security agreement where P would loan them money for working capital (Debtor/creditor relationship) a. Focus of inquiry: Level of control- Did P control A? If so liability i. Residual risk bearing: proxy for control; have all the risk of enterprise as opposed to regular lender who only has some risk ii. Need to show they were exerting the wrong kind of control b. Court looked at the following factors and found an agency relationship, holding P liable for contracts made by A acting on Ps behalf: i. Constant recommendations over the phone; right of first refusal on grain; inability to enter into mortgages, purchase stock or pay dividends w/o approval; right of entry onto the premises to do periodic checks and audits; correspondence and criticisms regarding the finances, officers, salaries and inventories; determination that they needed strong paternal guidance; provision of drafts and forms where their name was imprinted; financing all the purchasing of grain & operating expenses; power to discontinue financing the operation; amount of risk incurred by P ii. Typically party bearing the risk is the party in control

1. Risk here: risk of fluctuation of price of grain Agency: Tort Issues I. Vicarious Liability: a master is subject to liability for the torts of his servants committed while acting in the scope of their employment (RS 219-1) a. Employee v. Independent contractor i. A Master-servant relationship exists where the servant has agreed to (1) work on behalf of the master + (2) to be subject to master’s control of the way the job is performed ii. 2 Types of Independent Contractors: not subject to physical control- P cotrols what, not how 1. Agent: one who has agreed to act on behalf of the principal, but not subject to principals control over how the result is accomplished 2. Non-agent: One who operates independently and simply enters into arms length transactions w/others b. P is liable for torts & contracts: if employee (master/servant) done w/in scope of employment i. P is liable for contracts but not torts: If non-employee agent (agent- ind. Contractor) ii. P is NOT liable in agency law: If non agent independent contractor c. P is not liable: if not w/in scope of employee; in agency law (ind. Contractor (nonagent) or nonagent service provider) II. RS 228: conduct of servant is w/in scope of employment, if, but only if, it is actuated at least in part by a purpose to serve the master III. Analysis of Tort liability in Agency Context: a. Is there an agency relationship between P & A? b. Is A P’s servant or independent contractor? IV. Policy: Least cost avoiders wants P to prevent harms in future by internalizing costs V. Gas Station Cases a. Humble Oil: Humble employee negligently injured plaintiff and Humble was sued as P; Humble argued that station was run by an independent contractor so Humble was not liable for the owner or his employee’s negligence i. Inquiry on control: Humble controlled operations of station; owned station itself; products were sold there; operating agreement required station to do anything Humble required ii. Held: Independent contractor who ran the station was Humbles servant so Humble is liable EVEN THOUGH the k repudiated any control over station’s employees b. Sun Oil: Similar to Humble but Sun Oil advised the operation but Barone was not obligated to follow it; B bore the risk of profit/loss i. Held: No right to control; no master/servant relationship, so Sun Oil is not liable for Bs employee’s negligence 1. Does not control daily activities physical control: tells them HOW to do their job, not just WHAT they do c. Humble v. Sun Oil: Important Factors of Control i. Rent: Volume based v. volume-based but max. & min. ii. Utility bills: Humble paid v. ? iii. Reports: As required v. none iv. Hours of operation: Humble Set v. B set v. Subordinates: operator hires in both vi. Appearance: ? v. Sun Oil logos (the type of control Sun is seeking to insure is protecting intellectual propert) vii. Duration of P to Cancel: at will v. 30 day notice viii. Supervision: K requires perform duties as specified (command requirement) v. Sun make recommendations but B is free to ignore VI. Franchise Agreements: Franchiser supplies name, etc. & franchisee enjoys right to profit & runs risk of lossfranchise k does not insulate parties from agency relationship if the K so regulates the activities of the franchise as to vest the franchisor w/control w/in the definition of agency, the relationship exists even if the parties expressly deny it a. Courts construe franchisor liability narrowly- need to show control over the instrumentality that caused the harm

b. Murphy v. Holiday Inn: HI sells logo- licensing relationship off intellectual property—purpose of K was solely standardization i. Facts: P slipped & fell in HI. B owned hotel. HI not liable ii. Control analysis: HI did not have the right to control the methods or detail or doing the work so there was no P-A or M-S relationship. 1. Residual Risk bearer: makes the decisions that control if the business will make more or less money—if not, then you are not the least cost avoider & then no liability 2. No control over the part of the business that generated the injury (daily maintenance) c. Miller v. McDonalds: P buys a burger & bites a stone; K expressly disclaimed agency relationship but that is not enough; P went to the restaurant under the assumption that D owned, controlled & managed it i. Instrumentality that cause the injury: Making a big Mac D controls that (D enforced precise methods & retained power to cancel the K) ii. Right to control test: if the franchise agreement goes beyond setting standards & allocates the right to exercise control over the daily operations of the franchise, there is an agency relationship iii. Apparent Agency (RSA 267): one who represents that another is his servant or other agent & causes a 3rd person justifiably to rely upon the care or skill of such apparent agency is subject to liability to the 3rd person for harm caused by lack of care or skill of the 1 appearing to be an agent as if he were such 1. Problems: has the potential to make every franchisee into servant of franchisor; McDs would open less stores b/c they need the control over them; without the control they will hurt brand image 2. Potential solution: very visible signage so no justifiable reliance- might not be enough- need to allocate costs to injuries that are predictable in the business iv. Issue: Did the putative principal hold the 3rd party out as an agent & did P rely on that holding out? 1. Yes: McDs needs uniformity so public would think they were the owner v. Indemnification clause: says franchisee will pay franchisor for any problems BUT franchisee’s are judgment proof 1. Solution: Contractual means of allocating liability INSURANCE (require franchisee to buy or you buy & charge them) d. Ways to minimize franchisor liability for torts: i. Contractual disclaimer: Make clear that franchisee is IC ii. No holding out as agent: In contract, provide affirmative notice of relationship―independently owned & operated by‖ on everything iii. Indemnification: If vicarious liability, A will pay back P what is paid. 1. So K should say: Franchisee will indemnify franchisor against all claims as a result of them being found as an agent iv. Insurance: Purchase insurance for franchisee VII. Foreseeability Test: test of liability is whether employee’s conduct was foreseeable to the employer (broad) & some kind of general harm relates to employers demands a. Ira Bushey v. US: drydock sank from drunk seaman; no doubt master/servant relationship but the acts of the employee were NOT in the scope of his employment i. Analysis: Court did not care if the actions were motivated by his desire to serve the employer; instead what should the US have foreseen? 1. Foreseeable that sailors coming back and forth from ship would cause damage- arises from specific relationship, not general environment, b/c government insisted they have access to drydock 2. A business cannot disclaim responsibility for accidents which may be said to be characteristic of its activities: a. Risk characteristically attendant upon operation of the ship b. Human nature c. Conduct not so unforeseeable

d. As long as within course of employment ii. RS third rejects foreseeability rule VIII. Intentional Torts- motive/intent of actor can make employer liable; SERIOUS CRIMES are outside the scope or if the use of force is so unexpected a. Manning v. Grimsley: pitcher throws ball at heckler intentionally i. Holding: Where a P seeks to recover damages from an employer resulting from employee’s assault, he must show that the assault was in response to the Ps conduct which was presently interfering w/the employee’s ability to perform his duties successfully. 1. Heckler was interfering w/pitchers ability to pitch the game so team was liability 2. Question is Scope of Employment 3. Pitcher is liable as well IX. Independent Contractors: Contracting party is not liable for negligent acts of IC in the performance of the K unless: a. P retains control (really disguised as M/S relationship) b. P engages an incompetent contractor (ex. No insurance) c. Nuisance per se The activity is very hazardous d. Majestic Realty v. Toti: Demolition of buildings that were not safe enough; was an IC relationship- no control over wrecking ball i. Analysis: this activity is so inherently dangerous activity so the company is liable for the actions of the independent contractor b/c they cannot delegate their liability to another party 1. Holding: Contractor cannot satisfy judgment and so they should have hired someone with insurance Principal’s Liability in Contract I. Rest. 144: a principal is subject to liability upon Ks made by an agent acting w/in his authority if made in proper form and w/the understanding that the principal is a party a. If there is authority P is always liable for the agent II. Types of Authority a. Actual Express Authority: (AEA) P tells A to do x, A does x, so P is liable for consequences to T of x, even if T doesn’t know A is acting for P i. Manifestation of consent from P to A- express delegation of authority is actual authority ii. Not only kind: would slow things down for A; inefficient b. Actual Implied Authority: (AIA): P tells A to do x, but in order to carry out x, A takes other (not explicitly stated) actions (y) in order to do x, so P is bound to T for y this is actual authority (so manifestation of consent) i. Circumstantially proven by what the agent believed- the agent thought he had the authority to do it b/c he thought his authority included that 1. ―P actually intended A to possess authority & includes such powers as are practically necessary to carry out her duties‖ 2. KEY: signal P to A. If it is P to A, then its AEA and AIA. 3. ―actual authority circumstantially proven‖ c. Apparent Authority: (AA): Signal that is received by the 3rd party- think about what the 3rd party heard or believed. An A has authority sufficient to bind the P when the A acts in such a manner that would lead a reasonable prudent person to suppose that the A had the authority he purports to exercise i. KEY: signal received by T 1. T must reasonably believe & rely on the signals- doing so binds P 2. If P authorizes A to make such statements, then P will be liable to T under AA for statements made by A (Ampex) ii. Not actual authority, but holding out- appearances & communications between P & T iii. Agent has the AA to do those things which are usual and proper to the conduct of the business which he is employed to conduct iv. Policy Arguments: 1. Protects T who relies on manifestations of authority that don’t exist but are manifested to her by P

III.

V.

VI.

2. Externality: these manifestations create liabilities on Ts and to avoid externality on T, need to make P liable a. P is least cost avoider: can make clear no agency exists d. Inherent Authority: (IA): Actual authority which the P intended the A to possess and includes such powers as are practically necessary to carry out the duties delegated (catchall category) i. Undisclosed Principal: idea is that 3rd party has no reason to believe the A is not authorized to do what he is doing & the P is getting a benefit from the A so they should bear the risk of him acting outside the scope of his authority ii. P is responsible for some acts of A which, while unauthorized, are close to that which the A is authorized to do iii. Where there MAY be IA, there is usually overlap w/other categories (so ct will try to decide case on other categories) iv. Paradigm case: the undisclosed P v. Court looks at As direct & indirect manifestations and determined if T could have reasonably believed that A had the authority to conduct the act in question Mill St. Church v. Hogan: a. Facts: Church asks Bill to paint the building. In past, B has been allowed to hire his brother Sam to help. He needed help so asked S. S broke leg during job. b. Holding: B had Implied Authority to hire S so S was w/in employment of church when he was injured. So S can recover from church because B has AIA to hire him. i. Apparent Authority: Course of prior dealings led S to think B had authority Dweck v. Nasser: anymore? a. Facts: N replaces D and D sues for wrongful termination. Question of authority to settle. b. Implied authority: Set of past dealings between attnys led N’s attny to believe he had the auth. To make the deal c. Courts presumption sets up burden on N to say to T that lawyer does not have authority) i. Concern of where to place burden: 3rd party to confirm or principal to disclose 370 Leasing v. Ampex, p. 23: Salesman accepted K- is it binding? a. Facts: 370 (T) wants damages for Ampex (P) for breach of K to sell computer memories. Joyce (T) at 370 executed the K but Ampex never signed it. Sales rep (A) from Ampex wrote letter confirming K. b. Holding: Sales rep had apparent authority to accept Joyce’s offer on behalf of Ampex (letter can reasonably be interpreted as acceptance). i. No actual implied authority or actual express. 1. Limiting Instructions: Then A does not have ANY type of actual authority a. Here: known in Ampex that only certain people had authority to bind company i. Manifestation of non-consent: P expressly limited people to enter into a K like this ii. Apparent Authority: Only view that matters is Joyce 1. Relevant signals: a. Reasonable for T to assume salesman has authority to bind b. Joyce had asked for A and Ampex could have told her A was not authority but did not c. Nothing in K said A could not sign d. Course of Dealings: A suggested he could act for Ampex 2. Secret limiting instructions: Cannot affect apparent authority b/c not known by Tonly inside Ampex iii. Ampex could have protected itself in K: write in that only certain officers of Ampex had authority to sign on its behalf 1. Better to put burden on Joyce? More effort, Ampex is least cost avoider; Ampex has form K (so can add line for authority) Inherent Agency: a. Watteau v. Fenwick: Humble is Ds manager. Humble had no authority to buy any goods for business except ales and water. This action was brought to recover for cigars and Bovril.

Agent has a duty not to get material benefit from a third party in connection with transactions conducted or actions taken on behalf of the P or through the As use of the Ps position b. Holding: An undisclosed P is liable for acts of an A done on his account if usual or necessary in such transactions. but instead Ds obligation to fully reveal it. Secret Limiting Instructions: He could not have believed he had authority but sellers did not know there was a P so no argument on signals received from P. Acts or omissions by P.i. 1. P sues for spec. which create an appearance of authority in the purported A ii. B/c H did not purport to be acting on Ws behalf. Ratification creates the agency relationship that did no exist at the time of the act i. Agent has a duty to not deal with the P on behalf of an adverse party in relation to a transaction connected with the agency relationship unless there is fair dealing & full disclosure . Secret instructions + undisclosed P 2. b. perf. Affirmation can be express or implied c. H enters into K to sell property but he never told anyone that he was acting as his wife or her agent. a. not purchase. Requires acceptance of the results of the act w/an intent to ratify & with full knowledge of all the material circumstances b. Store said they did not have order and did not know salesman (P did not know A existed. It is not sufficient that AS may have been able to search  ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE is the test. a. VIII. customary course of business? Subjective to ct 1. Holding: It is the duty of the agent. no ratification. least cost avoider IX. Hoddeson v. Koos: Imposter salesman at a furniture store took Ps money & said would deliver furniture. Rationale: T should know who they are contracting with for knowledge if they will be likely to be paid Agency: Fiduciary Duties owed to P by A duty of care. RS 321: Unless otherwise agreed. Ds company is not incorporated. if he wants to avoid personal liability on a K entered into by him on behalf of his P. Curran: Shady fish salesman a. T changed her position in reliance upon the appearance of authority b. 2.no agency authority. to disclose that he was acting in a representative capacity & the identity of the P.she thought only rent. T must allege: i. Botticello v. so D cannot be personally liable. a person purporting to make a K with another for a partially disclosed or undisclosed P is a party to the K agent is liable personally c. W would need to ratify otherwise she is not bound by K. Even though W accepted rent. i. To prove agency by estoppel. as to some or all persons. An agent is a fiduciary of her principal: A has FD to act loyally for the Ps benefit in all matters connected with the agency relationship a. so can only succeed on estoppel) i. Ratification: affirmance by a person of a prior act which did not bind him but which was done or professedly done on his account. What is normal. But D signed the salmon K with ―inc‖. is given effect as if originally authorized by him (RS 82) a. If it is normal to sell Bovril to pub owners. Atlantic Salmon v. Agency by Estoppel: an agency created by operation of law & established by Ps actions that would reasonably lead a T to conclude that agency exists. Facts: Salmonor and AS are owed money for salmon sold to Ds company. P would have been liable here but they were judgment proof. T reasonably and in good faith acts in reliance on such appearance of authority iii. whereby the act. Not AS duty to seek out the identity of Ds P. i. utmost good faith & loyalty I. either intentional or negligent. Burden is NOT on T: would be more expensive to operate pubs. she did not have FULL knowledge of all material circumstances. they can just sell b/c it is implied in the type of business VII. Stefanovicz: Husband & wife own property as tenants in common. ii. although forbidden by P 1. Store created the risk: had control over sales floor. Holding: you do not automatically create agency relationship by marriage.―should not be required to scrutinize too carefully the mandates of permanent or semi-perm As who do no more than is usually done by As in similar position) ii.

Agents breach FD by acting adversely to the interest of the P by serving or acquiring his own private interests must disclose all facts a. Also.Singer could have bargained with GE before IV. But he did not tell GE he was acting as a broker for other corps. If the P consents. ii. Secret Profit Rule: agent violates his FD is he makes secret profits that take money away from the principal a. ii. Hypos: i. British military did not stop him because it looked like a military truck & Sergeant was seated in passenger seat w/uniform on. Holding: In his FD to GE.this is an advantage that he is not allowed so British can get it 1.

The trade secret was list of Ps customers. so he gave the work to another shop & made money off it. If A must account to P for profits depends on whether the agency afforded him the opportunity to make the profits OR the agents specialness provided him with the opportunity to make money a. General Automotive v. how much did the other place charge. Same if CEO of company and writes book 2.

Intention of parties: i. not just by what the parties title themselves: a. Facts: Chesire was employed as cashier and receptionist. Agreement: Necessary to form a partnership but can be express or implied. PROFITS v. the whole partnership is held laible II. REVENUES is important e. That he is in action on behalf of principal b.

Creditors can go after each partner for their proportion of obligation ii. Facts: PW-Bahamas had issued audit letter about the bank. Griffith thinks this is a problem: where is the representation coming from? Brochure? Court emphasizes reliance instead Partnership: Fiduciary Duty I. D continue to collect dividends on securities 2. Facts: Gerry leased Salmon a Hotel for 20 yrs. or joint adventurers. pre-signed resignations iv. Profit: mostly to F. Holding: Ds documents show that PW-Bah and PW-US are separately organized so no partnership. Basic Fiduciary Duties: a.5 mil of securities that was to be returned to them through a % of the company’s earnings ii. Control: All F.

UPA 40: Loans by PARTNERS to the partnership are subordinated to the loans of creditors other than parties i. Partnership by Estoppel: creates liability to third parties who (justifiably) rely upon representations that partnership exists.instead looks like a franchise iii. Holding: Lenders are not partners. w/o the consent of the other partners. Salmon: (Cardozo. Court looks to totality of relationship: Although excessive control. S was to pay M 40% of profits for the 1st 5 yrs and 50% after that. Partners v. Meinhard v.

M was to pay S ½ the money to manage & operate the property. nor may be diverted to his own use a partnership opportunity c. life insurance on main P (ok but excessive).

Holding: S held the lease as a fiduciary for himself & M. there is nothing about intent (no cause provision) & they did not withhold any of his $ or property 1. Other partners ask them if they are leaving and they say no. only had an interest in the partnership. Shaughnessy: Lawyers leave firm & take clients (like Town & Country. but the puntilio of an honor the most sensitive. To be ok: S would have needed to tell M about the lease (or extend as partners). His K says 2/3 to fire. 2. S sued bookkeeper & won. like co-partners. Dissent: this relationship is understood by the assets it has so the partnership is over at the end of the lease III. When lease expired. owe to one another. Putnam husband died and wife decided to get out. Partnership agreements can alter the Fiduciary Duties of partners a. 1.. S entered into a new one w/o M. They then took his files away & voted to fire him with severance. 1. Seems like penalty default rule: Should have bargained for what happened at the end of the lease iv. but they gave him one & he recovered. ii. No right to settlement money. Partnership K: Says you can take cases with you if you pay. EXAM QUESTION: Was that person stealing from S? False. 1. 1. Putnam wants that money. Shoaf bought her ½ interest and assumed all partnership obligations.no b/c they just told him intent before the 2/3 vote) + Breach of FD (partners just trying to increase $ by firing him) ii. Shoaf: Widow sells interest in gin i.they do not own their interest in each individual asset of the firm a. ―Joint adventurers. A trustee is held to something stricter than the morals of the market place. Contracts alter fiduciary duty: Otherwise it would require a ―for cause‖ requirement. Putnam v.
