Read the scenario and respond according to the prompts below.
Mary tells Liam and Mike that she will give them $2,500 if they paint her house. Mary’s statements are overheard by Jane, Mary’s neighbor. The next day while Mary is at work, she sees an ad by Bill’s painting that states “Bill’s will paint your house for $1,500, satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.” Mary calls’ Bill’s and arranges to have her house painted. When Mary returns home, she finds Liam and Mike hard at work and her house half painted. She screams at them to stop and orders them off her property. Bill’s workers come the next day and paint the house. Liam and Mike come to you for advice because Mary refuses to pay them.

Some items to consider:
What claims might Liam and Mike have against Mary?
- What defenses might Mary have?
If Liam and Mike have valid claims, what damages might they recover?
This is a FORMAL paper and should conform to APA standards. There are no word count requirements. THINK ABOUT THIS ASSIGNMENT! IT IS NOT AS EASY/SIMPLE AS IT APPEARS! THE FACTS MAY TRICK YOU!
