Question About MCR 2.116(I,1)
Question is for the State of Michigan, General Civil Litigation
The law says:
(1) If the pleadings show that a party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law, or if the affidavits or other proofs show that there is no genuine issue of material fact, the court shall render judgment without delay
What does this mean/translation of this and how does it influence the statute of limitation on a claim?
2.)My second question is about equitable estoppel.
n. where a court will not grant a judgment or other legal relief to a party who has not acted fairly; for example, by having made false representations or concealing material facts from the other party.
What does this mean? Does this include conduct such as intimidation, obstruction of justice, or withholding of information which if released would have allowed the plaintiff to have discovered that law was violated or that he or she had a legal claim?
