O'Keefe v. Lee Calan Imports, Inc.
Illinois Appellate Court
262 N.E 2d 758 (1970)
Lee Calan Imports, Inc. (defendant) advertised a car for sale in a newspaper. Lee Calan told the newspaper to advertise the car for $1,795, but the newspaper mistakenly listed the car as priced at $1,095. Christopher D. O’Brien saw the newspaper ad and showed up to check out the car in person. O’Brien decided to purchase and wanted to buy the car for $1,095, but Lee Calan did not accept that price. O’Brien brought suit against Lee Calan for breach of contract, and the lower court found for Lee Calan. The administrator of O’Brien’s estate, James L. O’Keefe (plaintiff), appealed.
