Duninger Corporation v. Montour

Simon Bieber, Nathaniel Read-Ellis, and Alex Fidler-Wener represented the wholly successful plaintiff in this cross-border contractual dispute over unpaid invoices for electrical engineering services provided to a planned cannabis grow operation on the territory of the Pit River Tribe in California. The question at trial was who the counterparty to the contract was, and whether the defendant was liable for unpaid invoices absent direct communications or a signed contract bearing his name. The court concluded he was liable for the full amount claimed based on the existence of a partnership and agency principles.
