“Several dictionaries, such as The Random House College Dictionary (rev. ed. 1988) and Webster’s New World Dictionary (1979), define obligee in its etymological sense [‘obliged’], as if it were synonymous with obligor. Random House, for example, defines obligee as ‘a person who is under obligation,’ but that meaning ought to be reserved for obligor. An obligee, in modern usage, is one to whom an obligation is owed.” Bryan A. Garner, A Dictionary of Modern Legal Usage 609 (2d ed. 1995).
