Sueing for breach of contract
Is it possible to sue for breach of verbal contract if someone says "I promise never to tell anyone" upon being told a secret which they later divulge to a third party? Does the simple act of saying you won't tell anyone actually constitue a legally binding contract or would there have to be something else happen to make it more formal in the eyes of the law?
P.S. I am well aware of the problems that would arise in the proving of such a case..I am just curious about the actual legal standings and definitions.
