#14-80 Horiike v. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Co., S218734.  (B246606; 225 Cal.App.4th 427; Los Angeles County Superior Court; SC110477.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed the judgment in a civil action. This case presents the following issue: When the buyer and the seller in a residential real estate transaction are each independently represented by a different salesperson from the same brokerage firm, does Civil Code section 2079.13, subdivision (b), make each salesperson the fiduciary to both the buyer and the seller with the duty to provide undivided loyalty, confidentiality and counseling to both?

Review granted 07/16/2014 – Oral Argument 09/07/2016
