Is Gentleman`s Agreement Legally Binding

Some types of agreements, such as employment contracts, must be defined in writing and therefore cannot be informal. Gentlemen`s agreements were a widespread discriminatory tactic that, according to reports, was more common than restrictive alliances to maintain the homogeneity of upper-class neighborhoods and suburbs in the United States. [17] The nature of these agreements has made it extremely difficult to prove or prosecute them and have been long after the U.S. Supreme Court`s decisions in Shelley v. Kraemer and Barrows v. Jackson. [17] One source indicates that gentlemen`s agreements „undoubtedly exist,“ but that their use has declined sharply. [17] Although agreements between individuals often create legally binding obligations, it may happen that mutual commitments do not give rise to a legally enforceable agreement.
