    An agency relationship has not been formed


    An agency relationship has not been formed because the agreement has an illegal purpose. An agency relationship is a situation where one party calling the principal allows another party called agent to act on his or her behalf.

    An agency relationship is only formed if the purpose for it's creation is legal. Meryl hired Alex to steal from Nancy, which is an illegal arrangement. Therefore an agency relationship was not formed.
