Camco Construction Inc. v. Utah Baseball Academy, Inc. 2018 UT App 78 (Apr. 26, 2018).

Apr 26, 2018

In this appeal following a bench trial, which involved several challenges to the district court’s rulings prior and during trial, the court of appeals held that many of the appellant’s arguments were inadequately briefed.  Among those were the appellant’s challenges to two of the district court’s findings of fact.  The Court of Appeals reaffirmed that “[w]hen challenging factual findings on appeal, appellants are expected to carry a heavy burden.”  It explained, “Recasting the evidence that was in front of the trial court is insufficient to demonstrate that a court’s factual finding was clearly erroneous.”
