South Central Judicial District, McLean County
Thomas J. Schneider
2014 ND 74844 N.W.2d 919
Oral Argument 1/10/2014

Highlight

A long-term lease with an option to purchase real property ordinarily requires a signed written agreement.
To take a contract out of the statute of frauds, the party seeking to enforce the oral contract must establish part performance that is consistent only with the existence of the alleged oral contract.
Promissory estoppel and constructive trust involve questions of fact subject to the clearly erroneous standard of review.
