Whether the goods supplied fell into the category of necessity?

If no, whether the contract was enforceable at law?

Who has the onus to prove/disprove the necessity of goods that were supplied to Inman.


Necessities are those goods or services that are suitable to the condition in life of minor and as to the actual requirements at the time of sale and delivery.

All contracts with a minor are void except for a contract of necessity.

This says that the goods need not be only suitable and necessary to the condition of the minor but must also be "actually needed" by him. The minor should not have already had a sufficient supply of the goods.
