    krell v henry


    In the case of Krell v. Henry, it centered on a dispute over a lease agreement for a flat during the coronation of King Edward VII. Henry rented the flat to view the coronation procession but later sought to back out due to the procession's cancellation. The court ruled in favor of Krell, the lessor, stating that the purpose of the lease was specifically for viewing the procession. This landmark case established the principle of frustration in contract law, where unforeseen events make performance impossible, thus releasing parties from their obligations. It's a pivotal precedent in contract law jurisprudence.
