Pangs of bar review courses would come back to young lawyers for this one. In New York, Civil Court Judge Carol H. Arber has ruled that a woman who gave her boyfriend a $20,000 motorcycle upon his promise to marry her doesn’t get it back when the guy broke his promise. Charles Bradley Mendelson, the cad, gets to keep the Harley-Davidson because he was married to another woman at the time, thereby voiding the promise. Judge Arber said since he wasn’t an eligible bachelor at the time of the gift, it wasn’t the kind of “gift in contemplation of marriage” that BARBRI lecturers say you have to return if the engagement is broken. Tough!
