Martin v. Rasmussen2014 UT App 200 (Aug. 21, 2014) 

Aug 21, 2014

The defendant in this real-estate dispute made an offer of judgment under Utah Rule of Civil Procedure 68 to resolve the matter by transferring four feet of a disputed five-foot strip of land to the plaintiff. The defendant attempted to revoke the offer three days before the the deadline stated in the offer, but the plaintiff accepted the offer on the last day. The court affirmed the district court’s order compelling the defendant to transfer the four feet of land, holding that the Rule 68 offer was enforceable and irrevocable.
