Highlight

If a party's apparent free consent to a contract has been obtained by fraud, the defrauded party may rescind the contract.
The parol evidence rule does not apply when a party alleges to have been fraudulently induced to enter into a contract, and parol or extrinsic evidence is admissible to prove fraud.
Statements of opinion, sales talk, or puffery do not constitute fraud, but the making of an affirmative statement of fact, known to be untrue, with intent to induce another to enter into a contract is actionable fraud.
The making of a promise with no intention of performing it with intent to induce another to enter into a contract is actual fraud which nullifies free consent to the contract.
Whether a party is entitled to a jury trial in a rescission action depends upon whether it is an action at law or a claim in equity.
