wasn't trying to diss you, but horrible application. it is funny though when 1st year students or practicing attorneys use legalize to say, "hey. look at me. i know law." especially without providing any reasoning or explanation. i agree though, i said it before, at least, the knowledge of dooma's lawyer had been easily recognizable (unlike a lot of internet lawyerz)
Dooma350 had a right to compel Husker to recognize his bid and sell to him. In order for Dooma to buy, he obviously had to come up with the money (and did). "Consideration" may have been involved in consummating the transaction, but it was not necessary to enforce the results of the auction and compel Husker to sell
Dooma's lawyer had it exactly right. None of the other commentators knew what he was talking about (and would have failed a Bar examination question on the subject; it's not really very hard).
