Congratulations to Hawley Troxell attorney Steve Schossberger, the Idaho Supreme Court issues a published opinion.

Hilliard v. Murphy Lane, Docket No. 42093-2014

The Idaho Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the district court. This is an appeal out of Owyhee County from a judgment that the purchaser of real property was entitled to $3,000,000 held in trust pursuant to the real estate contract to pay damages resulting from the delay in obtaining possession of the real property purchased. The district court granted summary judgment to the purchaser after holding that the material portions of the affidavits filed by the vendors in opposition to summary judgment were inadmissible. We affirm the judgment of the district court and award attorney fees on appeal.
