Appellate Court rejects fraud claim

Luevina Doyle sued the Detroit Development Real Estate LLC, claiming that through a series of false misrepresentations, it had induced her to rent an apartment under the assumption that she would be eligible to purchase it on favorable terms.  She claimed that the Corporation and its agents committed fraud by inducing her to believe she would be the beneficiary of a governmental program intended to encourage inner city property ownership.

The Court held that since the plaintiff had access to the actual contractual terms, she could not claim to have relied upon allegedly false representations made by the Defendants or their agents.  The Court also held that she had failed to prove a connection between the named Defendants sufficient to make the Development Corporation responsible for an alleged statutory violation caused by the actions of other individuals in preparing a mortgage application.
