Real-Estate Brokerage Claim Against Taylor Swift Related Entity Dismissed—Alleged Contract Lacked Definiteness—Key Material Terms—Breach of Contract—Quasi Contract—Procuring Cause—Direct and Proximate Link

A real estate brokerage company (broker) commenced a lawsuit against two of an entertainer’s (celebrity) representatives (representatives) in connection with the purchase of a Manhattan townhouse for $18 million. The broker also sued an entity, allegedly affiliated with the celebrity, which purchased the townhouse (purchaser). The broker alleged that the representatives contacted the broker in December 2016 and asked for assistance in purchasing a “particular townhouse.” The broker introduced the representatives to a different townhouse and, allegedly “over the next month or two, took various steps to facilitate a sale of that property.”

The broker claimed that he had made a “detailed showing” of the property; “measured the building with a laser device; introduced defendants to the house’s owner; and ‘obtained the blue prints’ for the house, which he then gave to the defendants.” The broker asserted that after February 2017, he had “received no further substantive contacts from the defendants.”
