GWTP Invs., L.P. v. SES Americom, Inc., 06-10747

In a suit for breach of contract, fraud, and breach of fiduciary duty arising from defendant's alleged agreement to purchase teleports on plaintiff's behalf at a bankruptcy auction and subsequent refusal to transfer them, dismissal of the contract and fraud claims and summary judgment on the fiduciary duty claim is reversed in part as to the fraud claim as the Statute of Frauds does not bar plaintiff's fraud claim insofar as it sought only reliance damages.
