In plaintiff's suit against defendant for fraudulent misrepresentation and negligence arising from his investment in their microwave technology, district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant is vacated and remanded as the district court's proximate cause analysis was in error as plaintiff produced enough evidence to raise a genuine issue of material fact as to whether defendant's misrepresentations were a substantial factor in causing his failed investment.
