Jodee Berry, 27, won a beer sales contest last May at the Panama City Beach Hooters. She believed she had won a new Toyota and happily was escorted to the restaurant's parking lot in a blindfold.
But when the blindfold was removed, she found she had won a new toy Yoda — the little green character from the Star Wars movies.
Those cutups at Hooters are always good for a few laughs! Hooter's defense? It was an April fool's joke! Of course, a contract offer must be evaluated from the standpoint of a reasonable person based on manifestations of intent, not from the subjective, unexpressed intent of the offeror.
What was the settlement worth?
David Noll, her attorney, said Wednesday that he could not disclose the settlement's details, although he said Berry can now go to a local car dealership and "pick out whatever type of Toyota she wants."
Good for her.
