Case Synopsis

This is a consolidated appeal in a contract action from a district court judgment on a jury verdict, and an order by the district court denying a new trial. The Court addressed whether a fraudulent inducement claim is available when the language of the underlying contract contradicts the required elements of the inducement claim; the propriety of compensatory damages awarded by the jury for lost profits in a contract claim; and the availability of punitive damages without a finding of fraud.
