Listen to recording of oral argument in MP3 format

Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
A. Whether the trial court applied the appropriate summary judgment standard for this case?
B. Whether reasonable minds could reach different conclusions as to the date Minn-Kota had "actual knowledge" of Norwest's breach of fiduciary duty?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Whether the District Court correctly granted summary judgment dismissing plaintiffs' claims for legal malpractice against Carlson and the McNair Firm where the District Court found that Minn-Kota had actual knowledge of a breach or violation by Norwest by June of 1995, and, therefore, the statute of limitations on Minn-Kota's claims against Norwest had run before Minn-Kota retained Carlson.
