Plaintiffs sued for specific performance of a contract for the sale of real estate. Their attorney had concluded that the abstract furnished by defendant indicated a possible outstanding undivided one-half interest in the property. Refusing to accept a conveyance unless the alleged defect was eliminated or protection offered against an attack on the title, plaintiffs sought a decree requiring defendant to clear title and convey according to the contract. There was no showing that defendant could obtain a conveyance of the alleged outstanding interest. Held, specific performance denied. Bartos v. Czerwinski, 323 Mich. 87, 34 N.W. (2d) 566 (1948).
