1. Whether any genuine issues of material fact exist which would preclude the entry of Summary Judgment against Heart River?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
a. Have the Appellants presented sufficient evidence of either actual fraud, or constructive fraud, to avoid summary judgment?
b. Does the parol evidence rule prevent a challenge to the unambiguous wording of the Warranty Deed, where the challenge directly contradicts the wording of the Warranty Deed?
c. Is reformation of a Warranty Deed available, where there is no evidence of a clear intention and understanding between the parties that contradicts the clear terms of the Warranty Deed?
d. Can the buyer in a commercial real estate transaction bring an action for fraud or reformation, if the buyer has failed to investigate the status of potential future special assessments against the property?
