|Appeal from:||Southwest Judicial District, Bowman County, Judge Harlan Patrick Weir, 06-10-C-00043|
|Nature of Action:||Real Property|
Appellant's Statement of the Issues:|
I. Whether the district court erred by granting Plaintiffs/Appellees' (Plaintiffs) Motion for Summary Judgment after the court weighed extrinsic evidence and made findings of fact in Plaintiffs/Appellees' favor.
II. Whether the district court erred in finding as a matter of law that the deeds in question conveyed a royalty interest and did not convey a mineral interest, based solely on the factual finding that Finlay was an experienced oil and gas broker.
III. Whether the district court erred in denying Defendant/Appellant Ronald Rowland's ("Rowland") Motion to Vacate Judgment by not giving due consideration to the facts and law offered in support of Rowland's motion.
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Issues of Gleason, Bragg, & Chenoweth:
I. Whether the district court properly granted Summary Judgment.
II. Whether the district court properly construed the deeds in question as royalty interests.
III. Whether the district court properly denied Rowland's Motion to Vacate the Judgment.
