Stanwood Motor Sports v. Arnold

Posted by Kevin Kavanaugh | Feb 01, 2018 | 0 Comments

In a recent Michigan Court of Appeals opinion, Stanwood Motor Sports v. Arnold, the Court discussed an exception to the general rule that a party that first breaches a contract may not maintain an action to recover under that contract. Stanwood involved a dispute over the terms of a commercial lease. The Court found that the first party to breach the contract did not materially or substantially breach the contract, and could maintain an action for breach of the lease agreement.
