The irregularity of the contract hinders the resumption of contractual relations

Rule to remember

L'irrégularité du contrat fait obstacle à la reprise des relations contractuelles The judge of the contract who is seized of an appeal against the decision to terminate a contract can not order the resumption of the contractual relations since the contract is irregular.
In this case, the Council of State considers that the contract is irregular on the ground that it contains a clause of renunciation of the public purchaser to the exercise of its power of unilateral termination. Consequently, he rejects the request to resume contractual relations.
