Unpublished Dispositionbancohio National Bank, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Martha Kenny Bland, Defendant-appellant, 822 F.2d 59 (6th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 822 F.2d 59 (6th Cir. 1987) July 6, 1987

Before MERRITT, MARTIN and WELLFORD, Circuit Judges.


This case involves an action to enforce payment of a promissory note. Martha Kenny Bland has admitted that she signed a note for $250,000 and had avowed that there was no fraud committed or misrepresentation made by BancOhio with regard to the note. In the district court she argued merely that she should not be obligated to make payment; the court granted the bank's motion for summary judgment.

The language of the note is unambiguous. Bland failed to raise any facts in her affidavit that would suggest the note was not to be repaid as written. Where there is no dispute as to the execution and default of a note, summary judgment is appropriate. Hanam v. Kittay, 589 F. Supp. 1042 (S.D.N.Y. 1984); Pinzer v. Wood, 82 F.R.D. 607 (E.D. Tenn. 1979).

The decision of the district court is affirmed.
