Gail Waters (plaintiff) owned an annuity contract worth $189,000, with a total potential value of $694,000 over 25 years. When Waters was 21, she began dating Thomas Beauchemin (defendant), who had a strong influence over her. He introduced her to drugs and exhausted her credit card accounts. He then suggested that she sell her annuity contract and, as an agent of Min Ltd. (Min) (defendants), initiated negotiations between Waters and Min. Waters contracted to sell her annuity contract to Min for $50,000. In the negotiations, Min was represented by counsel and Waters was not. In recognition of his fostering the sale, Min dropped a $7,000 debt that Beauchemin owed them. Waters brought suit for rescission of the contract on the grounds that it was unconscionable. The trial court found in her favor. Min appealed.
