FRESNO — Two Fresno County family members are suing other family members, alleging breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty.
Jack Sislian and Christine Sislian filed a complaint Oct. 20 in Fresno County Superior Court against Charlie Sislian, Starr Sislian and Does 1-25, alleging that they breached their duties of good faith and fair dealing involving the dissolution of a partnership and the sale of partnership assets.
According to the complaint, since December 2015, Jack Sislian and Christine Sislian have suffered and will continue to suffer damages because the defendants breached their fiduciary duty to the partnership by taking more monies from the sale of crops proceeds, and by preventing the plaintiffs from utilizing partnership assets and equipment.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants engaged in a wrongful business conduct contrary to the goals and benefits of the partnership, frustrated the economic purpose of the partnership, and deprived the partnership of money and property.
Jack and Christine Sislian seek trial by jury, punitive and exemplary damages, order dissolution of the partnership, order sale of the properties, accounting of the affairs, court costs,and all relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorney David L. Emerzian of McCormick, Barstow, Sheppard, Wayte & Carruth LLP in Fresno.
