Highlight

An interlocutory order is only appealable when there is a statutory basis for the appeal and the district court has complied with the requirements of N.D.R.Civ.P. 54(b).

The definition of “record” provided by N.D.C.C. § 44-04-17.1(16) does not require a public entity use information in a specific way for it to constitute a record.

Chapters 44-04 and 54-46, N.D.C.C., apply to information received by a public entity in connection with “official” or “public” business.

A party requesting additional discovery under N.D.R.Civ.P. 56(f) must “identify with specificity” the additional information it seeks and explain why that information would preclude summary judgment.

When a party has failed to perfect a cross appeal it may not seek a more favorable result on appeal than it received in the district court.
