Carrie is justified to go to court and file a legal suit against Paul on the following grounds. Firstly, Carrie can sue Paul for breaching a business agreement that they made on 15th May.

Secondly, Carrie can also sue Paul for the financial to compensate her for the financial damages she incurred when she bought the baking ingredients. Carrie can strengthen her case by adding that the whole process was a waste of her time, energy and resources and that Paul deserves to compensate her. On the other hand, Paul can defend himself by saying that, Carrie raised the price from the initial agreement, an idea that he was not comfortable with, therefore, he chose another person. Carrie can dispute this by saying that Paul could still manage to pay for the extra cost since he ordered party harts and favors from his new partner, costing extra $ 900 as compared to her extra $ 600. However, Paul can still insist since it is his own money and as well as his own party, he is justified to choose whoever he wishes to deliver him what he asks. Carrie can refute this by asking Paul why he did not cancel the deal in good time, because she informed him early enough of the extra cost.
