See also Implied authority. Implied authority is a form of apparent authority that can extend the scope of the agency relationship under certain circumstances. RESTATEMENT (THIRD) OF AGENCY § 2.01 (2006). More specifically: [I]mplied authority is authority that the agent reasonably believes he has as a result of the principal’s actions. This may be proved by evidence of acquiescence [of the principal] with knowledge of the agent’s acts, and such knowledge and acquiescence may be shown by evidence of the agent’s course of dealing for so long a period of time that acquiescence may be assumed. Montgomery v. Achenbach, 2007 WL 3105812, at *2 (Del. Super. Ct. July 26, 2007) (alteration in original). See 3 AM. J UR. 2d Agency § 87 (2002) (“[T]he authority of an agent to make a contract on behalf of the principal may be inferred from authority to conduct a transaction if the making of the contract is incidental to the transaction, usually accompanies it, or is reasonably necessary to its accomplishment.”). See id. (“The determination of implied [actual] authority depends on the relationship between the principal and agent and not on what a third party believes about the relationship.”).
