Equity will not enforce an unconscionable contract.1 Specific performance will be refused.2 Affirmative relief against an unconscionable contract will be given only if the inadequacy is gross.3 The theory of giving relief under such circumstances is that the inadequacy is so gross as to establish the existence of fraud;4 but it is said that it is the fraud and not the inadequacy that is the ground for equitable relief.5 Many of the contracts of the classes discussed in this section and those following are on the border line between those open to attack for want of a valid offer and acceptance, and those open to attack for want of a valid subject-matter.
