Termination by Operation of Law


TERMINATION BY OPERATION OF LAW. The death, insanity or bankruptcy of one or both of the parties will terminate the agency. So the declaration of war between the countries of which the principal and agent are respectively citizens may terminate the agency. The agency terminates on the happening of these contingencies independent of the act of the parties, and hence is said to terminate by operation of law.
