Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
Under the "significant contacts" test for determining choice of law issues, should the lower court have found that Montana has more significant contacts with the accident giving rise to this case, and a greater interest in its outcome, and thus that Montana law should apply?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Did District Court Judge Gail Hagerty properly determine that North Dakota has more significant contacts, under a choice of law analysis, to the issues in this declaratory judgment action, that North Dakota law should apply to this action, and that summary judgment should be granted to Nodak Mutual Insurance Company.
