voidable contract

(law) An agreement that is valid but that one party may declare invalid because of a defect or illegality in making it. A contract that is entered into in reliance on a fraudulent misrepresentation, for example, will be enforced against the party that committed the fraud, but the party harmed by the misrepresentation may elect to void the contract.
