Example 1: Peter is a woodworker who lives on United States government land (a federal Air Force base) and sells wooden toys to the toy store on the base. His ­written agreement with the store specifies the price the store will pay for each toy, when Peter is to deliver the toys, and what materials he is to use. The contract says nothing about the store buying a minimum number of toys each month. Peter has increased his production and would like the store to buy his entire line, and he sues them in federal court for breach of contract when they refuse.

Should one party refuse to disclose infor­mation, the other party can seek an order from the court requiring disclosure. If the non-disclosing party wants to contest the court order, an appellate court can be asked to immediately step in and decide whether the order was improper.
