Meyer v. Killingsworth

Supreme Court of Arizona

December 17, 1951

MEYER
v.
KILLINGSWORTH

Appeal dismissed.

Paul H. Primock, Phoenix, for appellant.

Ralph Barry, Phoenix, on the brief, and Leonard S. Sharman, Phoenix, for appellee.

Udall, Chief Justice. Stanford, Phelps, De Concini and La Prade, JJ., concur.

The evidence was in sharp conflict as to whether the written agreement of the parties had been cancelled and a new oral contract entered into, but that issue was resolved by the jury, as triers of the fact, adversely to the contention of the appellant. Where the evidence is conflicting and reasonable men could draw different conclusions as to the ultimate facts, this court will not disturb those ...
