Here are my two favorite graphs from the story:
“It is a dispute over the interpretation of a very complicated contract and how it should be applied. We are extremely hopeful it will be resolved without going through the litigation process,” says Baron. “I have nothing but high regard for the people at Baron & Budd, the employees of Baron & Budd.”
But in the four-page petition, Baron and Blue bring numerous causes of action against the defendants, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy to breach fiduciary duty, tortious interference, conspiracy to tortious interference, fraud or alternatively negligent misrepresentation, conspiracy to fraud, fraudulent transfer, conversion, legal malpractice, negligence, unjust enrichment, and alternatively promissory estoppel or quantum meruit.
I was hoping I could talk my wife into some alternatively promissory estoppel this evening.
