What is your point?

Anticipatory Repudiation (Breach)

1. Anticipatory Repudiation is a definite and unequivocal
manifestation of unwillingness or inability to perform a material
executory portion of a contract in which both parties have material
obligations remaining to be performed

a. must be definite and unequivocal

b. repudiated duty must be material

c. material bilateral duties remaining to be performed by both parties
(no anticipatory repudiation of unilateral contract, or of a bilateral
contract where one party's obligations already substantially

2. Effect of Anticipatory Repudiation

a. Aggrieved Party may bring an immediate action for breach, or wait
for repudiating party to perform

b. Aggrieved Party is discharged from further performance of its own
remaining obligations and may declare contract terminated
