APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS [Hon. Joseph L. Tauro, U.S. District Judge]

This unhappy case pits brother against sister. Sami Baghdady, a property developer in Massachusetts, allegedly used money from the sale of his sisters’ Teledyne stock to purchase land for the development of a residential apartments complex in Arlington, Massachusetts, in 1971. One of the sisters, Georgette Tiller, sued Baghdady on several theories, contending that she was promised a partnership interest in the apartments project, which she never received. The jury rejected her claim of intentional misrepresentation, the only claim that the court permitted the jury to consider.

In this appeal, Tiller argues that the trial court erred in excluding evidence about Baghdady’s disposition of the stock of his other sister, Violette Haddad. She claims that this evidence would have undermined Baghdady’s credibility, leading the jury to accept her version of the events and reject his. Tiller also challenges the trial court’s decision to grant Baghdady’s motion for judgment as a matter of law on her claims for breach of an oral contract and negligent misrepresentation.
