Club Exploria v Aaronson
In its order granting an attorney’s motion for summary judgment, the court dismissed the timeshare developer’s claim for tortious interference with contract, finding that the developer failed to provide any testimony that the attorney instructed any owner to cease paying or caused them to believe they could cease paying on their timeshare obligations. The court also dismissed the developer’s statutory deceptive practices claim, because Aaronson’s advertisements were not connected to “trade or commerce,” but rather to the practice of law. Moreover, the advertisements truthfully represented that Aaronson would pursue a resolution of his clients’ dispute with timeshare developers. The court found that Aaronson not only sent letters to negotiate with the developers on behalf of his clients, but also pursued arbitration or civil litigation on their behalf.
