Langhoff Props., LLC v. BP Prods. N. Am. Inc., 06-31203

In an action arising well after the expiration of a property lease to operate a fuel and automotive service station, seeking to recover damages for contamination of the leased property and possible contamination of adjacent property, summary judgment for BP is reversed where the district court erred in holding that a 1996 lease was a novation of a prior lease executed in 1966.
