In an action for breach of contract and promissory estoppel, district court's grant of summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) the court properly concluded that the parties' letter of intent governed their relationship after a certain date, and the letter of intent unambiguously gave defendant the right to terminate the parties' relationship; and 2) the court did not err in granting defendant summary judgment on plaintiff's alternative claims for equitable relief since it correctly determined that the letter of intent, as modified and extended, governed the parties' relationship.
