02 May Geeky Contract Terms: Force Majeure

No, force majeure is not a French boy band (although someone should tell Simon Cowell) or a special operations branch of the French Foreign Legion. Rather it is a special kind of caveat in a contract that may excuse performance of one or all of the parties. Most of the time, though, a force majeure is a not well-constructed clause and usually is missing details that make it meaningful.
