Dotson v. Milliken
Argued March 4, 5, 1908
Decided March 23, 1908
209 U.S. 237
A broker employed to sell land subject to a requirement of the purchaser which the vendor declares will be complied with is entitled to his commissions if the sale falls through solely because the vendor's representations are inaccurate.
The fact that the particular portion of a tract of land for which a broker finds a purchaser in accordance with the vendor's offer cannot be identified does not defeat the broker's claim for commissions if the sale falls through entirely for other reasons for which the vendor was exclusively responsible.
27 App.D.C. 500 affirmed.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
