Cullinane v McGuigan

Cullinane v McGuigan is a cited case in New Zealand regarding the requirement under section 7 of the Contractual Remedies Act 1979 that a breach of contract must be "substantial" for a contract to be cancelled, that "substantial" was not limited to a comparison of monetary values. The Cullinanes in 1995 auctioned their unfinished Christchurch house, that due to matrimonial problems, had remained an unfinished shell since 1991. On the day of the auction, the auctioneer told the bidders there was a letter from the council that they should first read before bidding. McGuigan did not read the letter, was the winning bidder at the auction for $37,000; when he read the letter, which concerned defects to the exterior cladding, that needed to be rectified before the building consent would be granted, with an estimated cost of up to $14,000, he canceled the contract and sought the refund of his $37,000 deposit. The Cullinanes claimed it was not a substantial breach to justify the cancelling of the sale contract, adding that the argument was immaterial anyway, as they claimed one of the letters by McGuigan's solicitors discussing settlement amounted to affirmation.

"We enclose copy of letter from the City Council dated 20 November 1995 containing many requisitions which were not brought to the attention of Mr and Mrs McGuigan by your clients. There was a letter of 21 November 1995 from Lovell-Smith & Cusiel Limited, circulated at the auction, but does not satisfy the matters referred to in the Council's letter of 20 November. Further, we enclose a Council Memorandum dated 27 November which rejects the letter from Lovell-Smith & Cusiel Limited. A recent check by Mr McGuigan of the Council's records show that there is no record of previous inspections in regard to foundations or framing. Mr Cullinane has advised Mr McGuigan that inspections have taken place, but the owners copy of plans with inspections notices thereon is with Mr Cullinane's builder, Mr Craig Milner, who cannot be located. Settlement is set down for 31 March 1996, we advise that our clients will not be prepared to settle unless all the requisitions noted in the Council's letter have been satisfied.

We require confirmation that all required inspections at foundation and framing stages have taken place to the satisfaction of the Council." In the District Court, it was ruled. However, on appeal, the High Court ruled that the contents of the letter could have been interpreted in numerous ways, setting aside the affirmation ruling, instead ruling that the defects involved were substantial in nature, that McGuigan was entitled to cancel the contract, was duly awarded a refund of his deposit; the Cullianes appealed. The court dismissed the appeal

2014 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election

The 2014 Pennsylvania gubernatorial election was held on November 4, 2014, to elect the governor and lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, concurrently with elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections. Incumbent Republican Governor Tom Corbett ran for re-election to a second term but was defeated by the Democratic nominee, Tom Wolf. Corbett was the first incumbent Pennsylvania governor to lose reelection since William Bigler in 1854. Corbett was considered vulnerable. An August 2013 Franklin & Marshall College poll found that only 17% of voters thought Corbett was doing an "excellent" or "good" job, only 20% thought he deserved to be reelected, 62% said the state was "off on the wrong track". Politico called Corbett the most vulnerable incumbent governor in the country, The Washington Post ranked the election as the most for a party switch, the majority of election forecasters rated it "likely Democratic".

Despite Corbett's unpopularity and speculation that he would face a primary challenge, he was unopposed in the Republican primary. The Democrats nominated businessman and former secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue Tom Wolf, who defeated U. S. Representative Allyson Schwartz, Pennsylvania Treasurer Robert McCord and former secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Katie McGinty in the primary election. In primary elections for lieutenant governor, which were held separately, incumbent Republican lieutenant governor Jim Cawley was renominated unopposed, the Democrats selected State Senator Mike Stack. Democrats and Republicans have alternated in the governorship of Pennsylvania every eight years from 1950 to 2010; this has been referred to as "the cycle", but it was broken with a Democratic Party win in 2014. Pennsylvania has voted against the party of the sitting president in 18 of the last 19 gubernatorial contests dating back to 1938; the last incumbent governor to be defeated for re-election was Democrat William Bigler in 1854.

Until 1968, governors could only serve one term. Libertarian nominee Ken Krawchuk failed to file the paperwork to be on the ballot in time and was excluded from the election as a result. Incumbent Tom Corbett filed to run, as did an attorney and conservative activist. However, Guzzardi failed to file a statement of financial interests as required by law, after being told by an employee of the State Department that it was unnecessary. Four Republicans, backed by the state Republican Party, sued to have him removed from the race; the case reached the state Supreme Court, which ordered that Guzzardi's name be struck from the ballot. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran Norm Benning backed Governor Corbett during the half of the NASCAR season with Re-Elect Tom Corbett placed on his truck.
