Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Property — earnest money — breach of contract

This appeal concerns a contract dispute between West Towne Hotel Associates and CBL & Associates Management. Under the contract, West Towne agreed to purchase land from CBL for the purpose of building a hotel. Eventually, CBL terminated the contract, and a dispute arose over which party was entitled to the earnest money deposited by West Towne. The circuit court, on summary judgment, resolved the earnest money contract dispute in favor of CBL. West Towne appeals. Because we agree with the circuit court’s interpretation of the contract, we affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
