New March 5, 2010

The defendant claims that the agency relationship between (him/her/it) and <name of agent> was terminated before <name of agent> entered into the <specify transaction> which is the basis of the plaintiff=s claim in this case. The defendant has the burden of proving that the agency relationship between (him/her/it) and <name of agent> had been terminated.  

The defendant claims that the agency relationship was terminated <select one or more:> 

  • when the time specified in the agency agreement expired. 
  • when the purpose of the agency had been accomplished.
  • when the parties agreed to termination.
  • when the agency had been revoked by the principal.
  • when the agency had been renounced by the agent.
  • by operation of law.

If you find that the agency had been terminated by the defendant and that the plaintiff had notice of that termination, prior to <specify transaction> which is the basis of the plaintiff=s claim, then you must find that the defendant is not liable to the plaintiff for <specify>.
