    2.Mistake
    Mistake is a belief that is not in accord with the facts.A contract is not enforceable if it is formed based on a mistake which results from an ambiguity in the negotiation of the contract,or where there was a mistake as to a material fact which induced the making of the contract.Thus mistake is one of the defenses the defendant may use in a breach of contract litigation to relieve his contractual obligations.Here the mistake does not mean ignorance,inability,bad bargain,or bad judgment.For instance,if in negotiating a contract,the parties used language which is susceptible to more than one interpretation,and one party honestly draws one interpretation while the other party draws another,then the courts will usually hold that no contract resulted since there was no meeting of the minds or mutual agreement.
    A mistake can occur at the time of formation,integration,or performance.A mistake may be mutual or unilateral.If both parties were under a misunderstanding as to the existence or nonexistence of the material fact,this is known as a mutual mistake and it is grounds for rescission of the contract.Where the mistake is unilateral in that it is made by only one of the parties,the contract may or may not be enforced.If one of the parties realizes that the other person is operating under a mistaken belief and seeks to take advantage of the error,relief will be granted.While negligence on the part of the party making the mistake usually will not justify the granting of relief,it will be granted where the negligence was slight,where enforcement would impose an unwarranted hardship on the person who made the mistake,and where relief would not impose a material loss on the other party.
