The IIB's basis is in doubt; it's not clear whether Burgundy Corporation
(which purportedly has agreed to the IIB) is capable of agreeing to it,
and also it's not clear whether Rule 101 prevents J being bound to it
from an Agoran point of view. An insufficient basis prevents a contract
being a person, and therefore it could not have registered.
Judge root's Arguments:
As I've noted, I don't think the reasoning applied in CFJ 1746 was
entirely correct. However, the judgement there was reasonable despite
the arguments, and it went unappealed at the time. I see no reason to
change the precedent now, and I accordingly adopt the precedent of CFJ
1746 for the following judgements.
CFJ 2242: The Burgundy Corporation is neither first-class nor a public
contract; it is therefore unambiguously not a person. FALSE.
