November 08 2018 Bar Review News By Pieper Bar Review

The Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) is the multiple-choice section of the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). It's a six-hour examination featuring 200 multiple-choice questions, testing examinees' abilities to apply fundamental legal principles and reasoning to given fact patterns.

Such a comprehensive exam demands an equally rigorous preparation regimen. Besides enrolling in a bar review course, the most effective study method for the Multistate Bar Exam is to answer practice questions.

Yeah, we know: easier said than done. Fitting this into an already packed schedule of intensive studies and related assignments, the responsibilities accompanying a job, and all the countless duties and unpredictable situations of personal and home life—whether that's caring for an elderly family member, children, or just the daily rigmaroles—can sound overwhelming.

With Pieper Bar Review, however, it doesn't have to be.

Today's Question:


A local hiking guide agreed to escort an adventurer on a month-long backcountry hiking trip. Two months before the trip, the guide validly assigned his right to payment from the adventurer to an outfitter in exchange for goods at the outfitter’s store. The guide subsequently cancelled the trip, and the outfitter never received his payment.

If the outfitter sues the guide and the adventurer for breach of contract, against whom is the outfitter likely to prevail?

  1. The guide only.
  2. The adventurer only.
  3. Both the guide and the adventurer.
  4. Neither the guide nor the adventurer.
Reveal the Answer

The Answer is A.

Here's why. 

An assignee gets only the rights the assignor had to convey. Always remember that the assignee stands in the assignor’s shoes. The assignor’s rights to payment here were subject to performance of his obligations to the adventurer. Because the guide had not yet performed, the adventurer is not liable to the guide and, therefore, not liable to the assignee, i.e. the outfitter.

The outfitter does have an action against the guide. The guide, as assignor, warrants that he will do nothing to impair the value of the assignment and that the assignment is not subject to limitations or defenses. Here, the assignment is subject to the adventurer’s defense of breach of contract or lack of consideration. Choice (A), therefore, is the correct answer.
