    white v bluett


    In White v Bluet, a legal case, a father transferred a debt to his son, White, but later promised to discharge the debt. However, the son then attempted to sue to recover the debt. The court held that the son couldn't sue because his promise was not supported by consideration; in other words, he didn't give anything in return for his father's promise. This case solidified the principle that a promise to discharge a pre-existing debt is unenforceable unless supported by fresh consideration. It's a foundational case in contract law, emphasizing the importance of consideration in forming enforceable contracts.
