I provided you with a Clearfied Doctrine reference
in another posted follow up. Here is another that
may be of interest.
"When governments enter the world of commerce,
they are subject to the same burdens as any

3. Bargain or agreement and full disclosure and complete understanding by both parties.
4. Consideration given.
5. Must have the element of time to make the contract lawful.
6. Both parties must be sui juris; that is, of lawful age, usually 21 years old.

there was not full disclosure, this makes a contract void from
its inception. To get this into court however, you will probably
have to engage in 'disclosure' through motion.

his clients rights, then there are no appealable issues once his client
