MISREPRESENTTION: JUSTIFIABLE RELIANCE
Reliance on representations of fact is almost always justified. Only where facts are obviously false is such reliance not.
Plaintiff has no duty to investigate representations, but if he does and finds them to be false, reliance is no longer justifiable.
Reliance on opinion is usually not justifiable unless:
-- defendant has superior knowledge of subject matter;
-- statements of law made by a lawyer to a lay person, or statements of law that includes a misrepresentation of fact by anyone
-- present intent statements pertaining to future events
