Duty of Good Faith in Termination

Definition

When a contract contains a termination clause, there is an implied obligation of the parties to exercise the termination clause in good faith. A party may be found to have breached his duty to terminate a contract in good faith when the termination is based on a technical pretense rather than a legitimate purpose as contemplated by the termination clause.
