The district court determined thatReisenfeld can sue on a quasi-contract theory. Quasi contract by definition is imposed by law to prevent unjust enrichment. It is presumed by a court in the absence of a true contract in order to collect for damages, restitution, and or recovery. Liability is determined on a case-by-case basis. (Legal Information Institute) BSI entered a contract with Network Group to assist in selling or subleasing closed K Mart stores in various locations. Reisenfeld, an Ohio real estate broker entered into a commission agreement. Network agreed to pay a commission of $1 per square foot if Dick’s Clothing & Sporting goods subleased stores in Ohio. Dick’s ended up setting up agreements with BSI for the stores located in Ohio. BSI stated they would pay Network a portion of the commission and Network would pay Reisenfeld. No agreement was ever made between BSI and Reisenfeld.
