In the Jutt v. Doehring case, the court held that the case was unsuited for summary trial because the material filed on the application showed a ...."head on conflict" in the evidence which goes directly to the foundation of the appellants' action against the respondents. It was not possible to resolve the conflicts without credibility findings being made.
