Sullivan v. Bullock
Idaho Court of Appeals
864 P.2d 184 (1993)
In April 1991, Cora Sullivan (Sullivan) (plaintiff) hired Dallas Bullock (Bullock) (defendant) to remodel Sullivan’s home. During construction, Sullivan stated that Bullock and Bullock’s workers were not to enter Sullivan’s home on a particular day. However, one of Bullock’s workers entered Sullivan’s home. Upon finding out, Sullivan told Bullock that Bullock was no longer allowed to enter Sullivan’s home. Bullock repeatedly requested that Sullivan allow Bullock to enter Sullivan’s home to complete the project and Sullivan refused. Bullock sent Sullivan the bill for the work completed and Sullivan refused to pay. Sullivan sued stating that Bullock’s work was defective. Bullock argued that Bullock could have remedied any defects, but was prevented from doing so by Sullivan. At trial, the jury returned a special verdict for Bullock. Sullivan appealed.
