Our client, Jacob Brown, is mad at his ex-girlfriend, Bella Goose and her boyfriend, the Vampire Edmund Callen. Jacob was madly in love with Bella, but she dumped him and broke his heart. He doesn’t want to fight Edmund since Edmund is a Vampire and could drain his blood, so he would like to sue Bella in court for breaking his heart. He does some internet research and finds that some states have a cause of action called heart-balm. He also believes that the promise ring he gave Bella constituted a binding contract to “stay together forever” and he wants to sue her for its return under a breach of contract cause of action.
Prepare a memorandum of law discussing whether or not Jacob can successfully sue Bella for heart-balm and breach of contract.
