Wedding or major event cancelled by Coronavirus? Our Raising the Bar team talks "force majeure" an option if you in a contract dispute after your event plans were cancelled due to the #coronavirus? Join The Manhattan Black Bar Association's Jason Clark and Adeola Adejobi for a special mini edition of #RaisingTheBar as they sit down with Sania Khan and Alvin Bragg to discuss mediation resources and how to find a solution that works for all parties.
As wedding season approaches, couples across the nation are faced with the grim reality that their weddings have been involuntarily canceled due to the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Consequently, we are likely to see an onslaught of lawsuits against wedding venues and vendors in the year to come. Particularly, breach of contract claims by bride-to-be’s against wedding venues and vendors for refusal to refund advanced payments for a wedding that never occurs. Fortunately, there is some hope for couples who have written contracts in place: wedding contracts may contain force majeure provisions, you may be able to rescind your wedding contract if it is impossible to execute, and your wedding contract may be unenforceable contracts because they are against public policy.
