Speaking of prize injustices



I'll direct you to a prize that was won by yours truly:  http://www.cardchronicle.com/2010/2/2/1288703/your-card-chronicle-connecticut

To save you the trouble, I'll post the relevant details below:

Congratulations again to IRISH2705. Your tickets, as well as an autographed wallet-size photo of me from 7th grade, will be in the mail shortly. 

I'll grant that Mike followed through on his promise of tickets to the Rutgers game (appreciated, thanks again), but I'm still waiting on the photo. I'm no lawyer, but I am familiar enough with tort law to attempt to force promissory estoppel. By definition, promissory estoppel prevents a promisor from unjustly retracting a promise made to a promisee who, as a result, suffered detriment from reliance upon the original promise.

Promise: Autographed wallet-size photo

Promisor: Mike R, proprietor of this fine blog

Promisee: Irish2705, visitor of this fine blog

Detriment: Irish2705 purchased small 2"x2" frame for expected gift (said photo)

Further comment: This aggression will not stand, man.

The defense to this case is actually what prompted Mike R to apply to law school (and get accepted, congrats).

The proverbial ball, my friend, is in your court.
