Frank owns a well-known restaurant in downtown Milwaukee within easy walking distance from the city’s convention center. The Organization of Chemical Research has a contract with the city of Milwaukee for the use of the convention center for its annual convention. Two weeks before the convention, however, the Organization announces plans to move the convention to St. Louis. The move is in direct violation of the Organization’s contract with the city of Milwaukee. When he learns of the move, Frank files suit against the Organization for breach of contract. Frank seeks money damages to compensate for the loss of business to his restaurant when the convention is not held in Milwaukee.
Assume that the contract between the Organization and the city is valid and enforceable. Assume that moving the convention does violate its terms. Will Frank succeed in his suit against the Organization?
