    adam v lindsell


    In the legal case of Adam v. Lindsell, the issue revolved around the acceptance of a contract via mail. The defendant, Lindsell, sent an offer to the plaintiff, Adam, by mail. However, due to a mailing delay, Adam received the offer after Lindsell expected a response. Adam accepted the offer by mail, but Lindsell had already sold the goods to someone else. The court ruled in favor of Adam, establishing the principle that acceptance occurs when the acceptance is posted, regardless of when it is received. This case is pivotal in contract law, clarifying principles of offer and acceptance in postal communication.
