Kapor v. RJC Investment, Inc.

by
The Supreme Court reversed the decision of the district court granting summary judgment in favor of RJC Investment, Inc. on Deneige Kapor’s complaint alleging that RJC failed to pay her the surplus allegedly realized on the resale of her mobile home after she returned it to RJC when she could not make the payments, as required by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), holding that the district court erred in granting RJC summary judgment based on its determination that Kapor was equitably estopped from pursuing her claims. Specifically, the Court held that the district court (1) erred in determining that the release agreement Kapor signed terminated any further application of the UCC; (2) erred in determining that the release constituted an acceptance of the collateral in full satisfaction of Kapor’s secured obligation; and (3) correctly held that Kapor was equitably estopped from pursuing her claims because all six elements of equitable estoppel could not be satisfied here.
