Answer the question at the end of the case regarding whether Ms. Mitchell was a minor and therefore could void the contract. There must be a minimum of three sentences. Use more sentences if needed to answer the question.
The third element essential to a legally effective contract is the legal ability to enter into a contractual relationship. This legal ability is known as capacity. Under the law, there is a rebuttable presumption that anyone entering a contract has the legal capacity to do so. Because the presumption is rebuttable, a party can attack it. Minors are allowed this privilege. Minority means that an individual has not yet attained the age of majority. An exception to the rule about minors and contracts involves necessaries. By statute and court decision, certain other types of contracts have been excepted from the general rule that the contracts of minors are voidable at the minorâ€™s option.
