Highlight

A reviewing court cannot perform its appellate function unless it is able to understand the basis for the trial court's decision, and therefore the trial court must provide an adequate explanation of the evidentiary and legal basis for its decision.
A court may not impose monetary sanctions against a represented party for bringing a frivolous action in violation of N.D.R.Civ.P. 11(b)(2).
