Immoral Agreements


IMMORAL AGREEMENTS. Where the undertaking on either side is to do or permit some thing decidedly immoral, as prostitution, making inde cent books or pictures, and the like, the law will not aid either party in enforcing the contract. But the law will not avoid contracts merely indelicate, and if the con tract is to be avoided it must grow immediately out of or be connected with the illegal or immoral act. The question of Morality is not always open to discussion, and, in general, only those contracts will be held void for immorality which the precedents have decided to be immoral.
