Oral Argument 12/17/2019
The primary purpose in interpreting contracts is to ascertain the parties’ intent.
The parties’ intent is ascertained from the writing alone when a contract is unambiguous.
When a term in a contract has only one logical meaning, the term is unambiguous.
A personal guaranty agreement that does not acknowledge or promise to pay an existing debt is not evidence of debt under N.D.C.C. § 28-26-04.
