D.V.G., a minor,
was injured by being false arrested by Beta Security guards because they
suspected the minor of stealing a SONY television. Beta Security guards also broke the minor??
wrist and punctured his lung by breaking his ribs while the minor was resisting
arrest. The Beta Security Company is
located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
D.V.G. and Beta Security entered into an agreement. D.V.G.?? attorney
submitted a settlement agreement in the State of Pennsylvania Eastern District
courthouse. DVG died from an unrelated
auto accident before the Court approved the agreement. Beta Security stated that it is not bound by
the agreement because a minor has a lack of capacity to contract and cannot
enter into a contract without approval of the court. (Hint:
See Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. v. Wood, 402 So. 380 (Ala. 2013. Analogize this to the above fact pattern, and
tell me should Beta be bound by the agreement.
Fully explain.
