    l estrange v graucob


    In the case of L'Estrange v Graucob, the court ruled that a signed contract binds the signer, regardless of whether they read or understood its terms. Mrs. Graucob, the plaintiff, purchased a vending machine from L'Estrange and signed a sales contract without reading its terms. Later, she discovered unfavorable conditions. Despite her claim that she hadn't understood the contract, the court held her bound by her signature. This case established the principle of "caveat subscriptor," meaning "let the signer beware." It underscores the importance of thoroughly reading and comprehending contracts before signing, as one's signature implies agreement to all terms.
