||Court of Appeal, Civil Division
Pill, Tuckey LJJ and Sir Ronald Waterhouse
||The claimant appeared in person.
||Peter Susman QC (instructed by Addleshaw & Booth, Leeds) for the defendant.
||16 February 2001
Contract - Enforceability - Certainty of terms - Claimant purporting to accept defendant's offer of research post subject to conditions - Uncertainty as to terms agreed - Judge finding no concluded agreement - Whether purported agreement failing for uncertainty - Whether agreement unenforceable.
Whether or not an alleged agreement was sufficiently certain to be enforceable had to be judged on the facts of the individual case. In the instant case, the claimant's action for breach of contract would fail as an agreement granting the claimant a research post had been too uncertain in its terms to be enforceable.
