Dennis M. Sammarone v. James J. Bovino; Town & Country Developers, Inc.

07-23-07 A-6287-05T1

Plaintiff sued to collect commissions promised to him for
effectuating an introduction to Leona Helmsley and her key
personnel, resulting in defendants' purchase of a valuable tract
of land in Fort Lee owned by the Helmsley interests. The trial
court granted defendants' motion to dismiss for failure to state
a claim because plaintiff is not a licensed real estate broker.
We reversed, finding that plaintiff should have the opportunity
to attempt to develop a record to establish that denying him a
commission would unfairly benefit defendants and not further the
purpose of N.J.S.A. 45:15-3.
