Some contract disputes are simple. Some aren't. The $100 million breach-of-contract dispute between American Skiing Co. and Wolf Mountain Resorts over Park City's The Canyons resort is apparently one of the latter. Asked what the litigation is about, a lawyer for ASC said that it involves "many, many different breaches in play, with 10 years of dealings between the parties." Exactly what the breaches are will presumably emerge during discovery, since (as an opposing lawyer notes), "We're all fighting over the same ski resort that is worth quite a lot of money."
