Facts and Judgment
Bettini v Gye (1876) QBD 183
Bettini agreed by contract to perform as an opera singer for a three month period. He became ill and missed 6 days of rehearsals. The employer sacked him and replaced him with another opera singer.
Bettini was in breach of warranty and therefore the employer was not entitled to end the contract. Missing the rehearsals did not go to the root of the contract. Back to lecture outline on conditions, warranties and innominate terms in Contract Law
