Wife Concedes Ambiguous Term In Agreement; Prevails On Appeal
Separation agreement provided non-modifiable maintenance to Wife, and Circuit Court found no basis for modification, so it had no power to modify maintenance. Husband's points, all related to manner of modification, are therefore moot. Ambiguity remains in terms of agreement, but Wife's concession of the point allows Court of Appeals to issue judgment Circuit Court should have.
