AHFME Symposium Abstract


Recent court decisions have redefined the relationships and expectations of both owners and operators involved in hotel management contracts. What were once considered irrevocable contracts that a court would enforce with an order for specific performance are now likely to be contracts that can be revoked (but which may carry the risk of damage awards). This paper looks at contract law and examines several interesting hospitality court cases to determine the types of damages that would be available in the event a court determines that a management contract has been breached.
