Boscoe v. Port Ludlow Associates

Appellate Decision


In a case involving a claim for a $10 million "finder's fee" in the cross-border purchase of a resort, the appellate court upheld the lower court's dismissal of certain causes of action in the 3rd amended complaint with prejudice, which had the effect of dismissing Port Ludlow Associates from case shortly before trial.

[Nota bene: The subsequent 2-month jury trial before Judge McBride resulted in the award of a token finder's fee, as well as a finding that Boscoe had committed fraud against co-defendant HCV Pacific Partners]
