After have a full opportunity to examine the subject computer system, Turner entered into a contract withDr. Unger to design and install a billing program for Dr. Unger’s dental practice for a flat fee of $2,000. After entering into the contract with Dr. Unger, Turner subsequently realized that the task would require several more hours of programming effort than she originally anticipated from her pre contract review of the subject computer system, Turner informed Dr. Unger that she could not complete the work for less than $3,000. Dr. Unger reluctantly stated that he would pay the additional $1,000 and confirmed this in writing, but upon completion of the work refused to pay Turner more than $2,000. Is Turner entitled to the remaining $1,000? Hint, if the answer to this question seems complete obvious, then think again.
