Breach of contract, in regards to promised dowry.
The Capulets promised Juliet—and, by extension, a dowry—to Paris in marriage. Having made the promise, it became their responsibility to ensure that she follow through.
By setting the date at such a short time after the death of Juliet’s cousin Tybalt, the Capulets placed unnecessary pressure on the situation, directly causing Juliet’s rash actions.
Ergo, the Capulet family’s actions are directly responsible for the failure to pay the dowry.
Accomplice to Murder of Juliet of the House of Capulet.
The murder of Juliet of the house of Capulet was witnessed by several watchmen. Although she herself drove the fatal dagger into her heart, the prosecution asserts that her suicide was the intended result of a chain of events initiated by the Capulets.
The objective of the original confrontation between Tybalt and Romeo was to push Juliet into marriage with Paris. When Tybalt died, the Capulets set the wedding date for the very near future because they believed that it would cause her to be more accepting of the marriage.
All did not go according to plan; when Juliet continued to rebel against the marriage, the Capulet parents planned to dispose of her in such a way that the fault for her rebellion would not appear to be on their hands. They allowed her to be alone on the night before the wedding, and were likely pleased when they woke to find their daughter dead.
Although Juliet was not dead as quickly as her parents had intended, the intent and final result were the same. The Capulets are undeniably and deliberately at fault for the death of their daughter Juliet.
The only witnesses to the Capulet’s supposed grief were their nurse and the Capulets themselves; this is hardly credible evidence.
Aside from their deliberate attempts to ruin Juliet, the Capulets are also at fault for blatant child negligence.
