Boutelle v. Boutelle

Sister filed a negligence action against Brother for injuries she sustained in a single-vehicle accident that occurred in Montana. Brother moved for summary judgment, contending that because the accident occurred in Montana, Wyoming’s borrowing statute required application of Montana’s three-year statute of limitations, and therefore, Sister’s action was barred. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not err in (1) rejecting application of Montana’s choice-of-law statutes in applying Wyoming’s borrowing statute; (2) determining that Sister’s cause of action arose in Montana; and (3) applying Montana’s three-year statute of limitations to bar Sister’s cause of action.
