Any broker/agent successfully sue a party who tried to cut you out of commission?

1 Reply

I'm wondering if anyone out there has successfully sued a buyer or seller for cutting you out of a commission.  I have a client/Broker who is in this boat (oral agreement ONLY, no written contract, just emails) and I'm looking for successful experiential tips.  Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks.

In most states, a listing agreement must be written in order to be binding.  I found a 1998 reference that stated there can be Oral agreements in NY, but that is pretty old to be a reliable source.
