LEDGERDERMAIN RULED BREACH OF CONTRACT



Beersheba - The Magistrate's Court here yesterday upheld charges that Uri Geller, the self-proclaimed telepathist, was guilty of breach of contract in that he promised to perform feats of telepathy, parapsychology, hypnotism and telekinesis, while in fact he merely employed sleight-of-hand and stage tricks. Geller was ordered to foot costs of 20 and to repay the plaintiff - Uri Goldstein, a mechanical engineering student at the University of the Negev - the 7.50 Goldstein had paid for a ticket to one of Geller's performances. The court ruled with the plaintiff that Geller's performance - in contrast to his advertised promises - constituted a breach of the contract defined by the purchase of a ticket to the performance.
