Wilson v. Parker

The Wilsons sued the Parkers over a dispute about whom has title to a tract of land. The lower court ruled that, because there was no writing to convey the land to the Wilsons, who had spent thousands of dollars to improve the land, the Parkers retained possession. The trial court also denied the Wilson’s clam for unjust enrichment. The Wilsons appealed the trial court’s ruling with respect to the unjust enrichment claim.

The Superior Court reversed the trial court and ruled that the trial court had the law of unjust enrichment entirely backwards.
