Campbell v. Kvamme

The Campbells appealed the grant of summary judgment in favor of their neighbors The Kvammes. The parties disputed whether a fence between their respective properties constituted the true boundary of their land. The district court found that a land survey submitted by the Campbells lacked adequate foundation to be admissible, and therefore awarded the Kvammes summary judgment. On appeal, the Campbells argued that the district court abused its discretion when it disregarded the affidavit of their land surveyor in their motion for reconsideration. The Supreme Court found that because the district court granted summary judgment on two independent grounds. The Campbells challenged only one of those grounds on appeal. By law, an appellant must challenge all grounds to prevail. The Court therefore affirmed the district court's grant of summary judgment. View "Campbell v. Kvamme" on Justia Law
