What is my recourse if little league football trying to collect additional money for paid items?
Question Details: My son played for a little league team which clearly stated during sign-ups via Facebook and elsewhere, that the game day uniform pants and jersey were included in the registration cost. It was posted multiple places, including Facebook. Now that the season is over they are trying to say that it was a mistake and that the jerseys need to be returned. If they are not returned they will be sending out a collections letter. Is this legal? Many of us parent are furious because many promises throughout the season were not kept and now this. My son was so excited about his jersey and now upset it has to be returned.
You can sue little league football for breach of contract. Your argument is that there is a fundamental principle of Contract Law which is that if one party (little league football) to a contract claims there was a mistake in the terms of the contract and the other party (you) did not know and had no reason to know of the mistake, then the contract is enforced on the innocent party's (your) terms against the mistaken party. Therefore, the contract will be enforced on the jersey being included in the registration cost and you can keep the jersey.
