Defenses: Estoppel

Estoppel is an equitable doctrine and is available when a party offers a false representation or conceals information that reasonably induces an injured party’s inaction. In order for estoppel to apply, the party estopped must have acted with the intention or expectation that the other party will rely on its conduct and the other party does so to its determent. Hitachi Automotive Products USA, Inc. v. Craig, 279 S.W.3d 123, 126 (Ky. 2008).
