A Pale Tale

The buyers called a week after the closing, wondering if they could sue the sellers over a big problem discovered after the closing.

“Generally you can’t sue unless you can prove fraud,” I replied.

There was no fraud, one of the buyers conceded. It was just that the sellers had “used the world’s most horrible red paint” and it was “messing up” the buyers’ planned decor.
“We want a pale, pale blue, but their damn paint is making everything look purple.”

I think that this story should be printed up and handed to every student planning to go to law school.
