Mutuality
 

 

This concerns actions for breach of contract. The court will not give a decree of specific performance unless there is mutuality, that is to say, unless the remedy would be available to both parties. For instance, a minor will never obtain specific performance of contracts which cannot be enforced against him because of his infancy.
