Saffie v. Schmeling, et al.

In Saffie v. Schmeling, et al., Court of Appeals for the State of California, Fourth Appellate District, Case No. E055716, dated March 7, 2014, a buyer of commercial real estate (“Buyer”) appealed, and the Court of Appeals affirmed, the trial court’s ruling in favor of the seller’s broker (“Seller’s Broker”) on claims arising from a statement posted on a multiple listing service (“MLS”) that Buyer contends was false or inaccurate.[1]

In June 2006, Seller’s Broker posted information about an undeveloped commercial parcel on a MLS, including the following statement: “This parcel is in an earthquake study zone but has had a Fault Hazard Investigation completed and has been declared buildable by the investigating licensed geologist. Report available for serious buyers.” (Saffie v. Schmeling, at 3.)
