Christina L. Marie Bass v. Shannon Docheff; Re/Max Traditions Inc.; and Martin Ferri
Plaintiff says she and defendant Ferri were co-owners of a property Docheff and Re/Max listed for sale, and upon information and belief, on Sept. 21, 2019, Ferri received correspondence from a major cellular telephone provider that tendered an offer for a multi-year cellular tower offer for the property, and conveyed this offer to Docheff, but Docheff and Ferri did not timely convey it to plaintiff. Plaintiff says on Sept. 23, 2019, she accepted a buyer’s counteroffer for the property for $490,000, without any knowledge of the cellular tower offer, and because of defendants’ negligence and breach of good faith and fair dealing, has suffered severe and permanent economic damages and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Plaintiff seeks an amount to fully compensate her at trial.

Five M Enterprises LLC v. Cushman & Wakefield U.S. Inc.
This is a declaratory judgment action filed to determine the rights and obligations
of the parties with respect to Five M’s lease and subsequent sale of real property located at 1130 Diamond Valley Drive, Windsor, to PetDine Properties for $17.25 million in July 2021. Specifically, plaintiff says defendant drafted a listing agreement, letter of intent and purchase agreement related to 1130 Diamond, and each document references different terms with respect to the brokers’ commission owed for transactions. Taken together, plaintiff says, these documents demonstrate that no binding, effective agreement exists between Five M and Cushman for the brokerage commission to be paid by Five M, and that Five M should be made whole for Cushman’s unjust receipt of certain amounts related to the 1130 Diamond transactions. Plaintiff says defendant unjustly received approximately $240,000 in commissions from a related sale in August, when plaintiff purchased 840 Diamond to accommodate PetDine’s requirement that 1130 Diamond be vacant at the time of closing, and unjustly forced plaintiff to place $690,000 in escrow, thereby depriving Five M of these funds. As a result, plaintiff says it has been unable to deposit these funds with an Exchange Intermediary in accordance with Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, potentially exposing plaintiff to several hundred thousand dollars in capital gains taxes. Plaintiff seeks a ruling that no binding, effective agreement exists between Five M and Cushman for the brokerage commission to be paid to Cushman for the real estate transactions; that Five M be made whole for the unjust enrichment enjoyed (or attempted to be enjoyed with respect to the escrowed amounts) by Cushman; and/or any other relief as the court deems just and proper.
