Summary judgment reversed in case of father vs. son

In Maltas v. Maltas, the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for the panel of Judges Niemeyer, Motz, and Gregory reversed the summary judgment for the defendants in a dispute between a father and son over money for a house, while noting that "[w]hen this Court is asked to resolve appeals such as this, the difficulty lies not in the legal questions but in our recognition that resolving the legal issues does little to heal the emotional wounds created by the circumstances surrounding the lawsuit itself."
