Third-Party Beneficiaries of Contracts Entered Into by Local Governments

Record #:
Normally someone who is not a party to a contract has no standing to enforce or challenge the validity of the contract, nor any right to seek damages for its breach. Occasionally, however, courts recognize and enforce nonparty rights in a contract, as third-party beneficiaries.
