< Back
Facts
  • Pop group “The Troggs” enter into an agreement with POR to be their managers
  • After awhile, The Troggs decide to terminate their agreement (stating breach but this is not held to be the case by the judge) and employ a new manager
  • The old manager sues
Held
  • There was no evidence that the first manager breached the contract
  • But just because the Manager can recover damages does not mean he can get specific performance
  • To give specific performance would be to “tie together” two parties who don’t have any trust etc
  • To enforce an injunction would really be to force the Defendant to act positively in relation to personal services, which cannot be done.
  • Also it would severely detriment their careers and leave them starving
