duty is to apply or as to the scope of the implied duties. Instead, it
agrees with Professor Van Alstyne, who wrote: 'As such, the scope of the
implied duty must be resolved on a case-by-case basis. The implied duty
to cooperate and not to hinder (or the implied duty of good faith and
fair dealing) allows a court to monitor how a promise is performed or
right exercised so that it is consistent with the ordinary expectations
of parties to such a contract, objectively judged.'").
