A Miami lawsuit that accused Texas-based real estate developers of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organization Act is no more, after Florida U.S. District Judge Cecilia M. Altonaga found the plaintiff failed to plead specific allegations of wrongdoing.

It’s a case that highlights the importance of backing up allegations, as Altonaga concluded the lawsuit described “a business relationship that ended poorly,” writing that the plaintiff “cannot shirk its pleading obligations by simply hurling insults, alleging (what seem to be) ordinary business communications, and concluding the defendants conduct was fraudulent.”
