DRZ represented a Kansas family in a lawsuit against business partner in a joint venture to farm a large tract of cropland. DRZ’s client agreed to invest and share the profits in an enterprise to farm land located in Montana. Instead, income to the business was not being shared and was being concealed. After a week-long trial, DRZ’s client obtained a jury verdict for fraud against his former business partner. The business partner then attempted to appeal the jury verdict, but the appellate court agreed with the jury’s verdict.
