Task 2.3

Byron, a law student, needed a pen to write an exam. Sarah, another law
student, sold him her spare pen for $1.29. During the exam, the pen stopped
working. Frustrated, Byron stopped taking the exam and failed the course. His
grade point average slipped below the required standard, and he flunked out of
law school. Thinking that he learned something useful in law school, he sued
Sarah for the $2 million difference between what he would have earned as a
lawyer and what he was likely to earn without a law degree.
Explain the consequences in light of the court judgement and reason upon the
same.
