A contract is a legally binding document between at least two parties, which defines and regulates the rights and obligations of the parties to an agreement.  A contract is legally enforceable because it complies with the requirements and approval of the law. A contract usually involves the exchange of goods, services, money or promises from one of them. “breach of contract” means that the law must grant the victim either access to remedies, such as damages, or annulment.

The Court of Appeal set aside the principal judge`s finding. If the primary judge`s interpretation was available and contentious, it was not the preferable and actual meaning of the contractual provisions at issue. But how does a court achieve “true meaning”? And, more importantly, nearly 21 years later, the real rule, as declared by Justice Mason in Codelfa Construction Pty Ltd against State Rail Authority of NSW (1982) 149 CLR 337, is still applying?
