Oral Argument 1/2/2019

Highlight

The proper remedy for fraud is recision of the contract.

Parties agreed to continue with the sale of the real property after failure of condition precedent.

Finding that a contract for deed was ambiguous required remand for interpretation of that contract for deed using extrinsic evidence.

A contract is ambiguous when reasonable arguments can be made for different positions on its meaning.
