Centech contracted with the Navy to convert microfiche personnel records into digital form and subcontracted I-NET to design and develop a data conversion system. After Centech became delinquent in its performance, Centech and I-NET entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) stating that I-NET would assume liability for performance of the prime contract from Centech. When they were unable to agree to a novation or substantial restructuring, they entered into a new MOU superseding all previous agreements. The Revised MOU stated that I-NET would assume full liability for timely and satisfactory performance and delivery of services and indemnify Centech against all contractual claims and losses arising from any failure to perform such services. Centech is suing I-NET for breach of the Original MOU and the Revised MOU, claiming that I-NET failed to provide Centech with the required teaming and bidding opportunities. The district court granted summary judgment for I-NET on Centech's claim under the Original MOU because it had been abrogated by the Revised MOU, which superseded all previous agreements. The district court rejected Centech's claim that the Revised MOU was not a valid contract. Centech has appealed.

Brief anything. Instantly.

Our proprietary state-of-the-art system can instantly brief over 6,000,000 US cases. That means we can probably brief that case that your professor assigned last night when she sent you a poorly scanned pdf and told you to read every third paragraph. Or maybe she uploaded it to Canvas and didn’t really tell you to read it, but you know you probably should. Tenure does wild things to good people.

Social Learning with Chat and High Points

Study groups are a great way to learn and explore a case. LSD has chat rooms for each case to let you ask questions across the community and hear what other students struggled with and how they put it all together.
