Jerome Cohen was a youth counselor for Mellon Community Center (MCC). Needing paper supplies for a project he had planned for the youths he was counseling, Cohen went to a local Staples supplies store and selected $150 of paper goods. He paid for the goods with his personal credit card. He did not tell Staples that he was buying the paper goods for MCC. Cohen asked MCC to reimburse him for the cost of the paper goods, but it refused on the grounds that Cohen should have asked for permission in advance.
Cohen then refused to pay the credit card bill for the paper purchase. He argued that since he bought the goods for MCC, only MCC was liable on the contract to buy the goods. Was Cohen right?
