Amy Huss (plaintiff) and James Weaver (defendant) were dating and signed a contract providing that if the couple had a baby, Huss would have physical custody and Weaver would have visitation rights. The contract further provided that if Weaver petitioned a court for modification of the contract, Weaver would pay Huss $10,000 per modification attempt. Weaver was an attorney making a significant salary. The couple had a baby, and the next month Weaver petitioned for custody. Weaver did not pay Huss $10,000 for the modification attempt. Huss brought suit alleging breach of contract. The trial court dismissed the complaint, finding the contract provision void as against public policy. Huss appealed.
