Britton v. Turner
Citation:6 N.H. 481 (1834)
The dispute involves the work and labor performed by the plaintiff, in the service of the defendant from March 1831 to December 1831. The plaintiff claims he is entitled to quantum meruit for the labor, which he averred it to be worth one hundred dollars. The defense was that it was performed under a special contract – that the plaintiff agreed to work one year and that the defendant was to pay him for said year’s labor the sum of one hundred and twenty dollars. Evidence also showed that the plaintiff left the defendant’s service without his consent, and it was contended by the defendant that the plaintiff had no good cause for not continuing his employment.
