LAS VEGAS (Legal Newsline) - Three California consumers have sued a group of Nevada hotel businesses, alleging breach of contract and good faith in a property-ownership regulation dispute dating back to 2006.
Alice Sinanyan, James Koury and Sehak Tuna filed a class action complaint against Luxury Suites International (LSI), RE/MAX Properties and JetLiving Hotels, d/b/a Jet Luxury Resorts, alleging breach of contract in Clark County District Court in Nevada on Jan. 5. A month later, JetLiving removed the case to federal court.
The suit said Sinanyan purchased two condo units in the Signature at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Aug. 16, 2010. Koury bought two units on Dec. 5, 2006, and Tuna acquired one unit on Nov. 21, 2006.
The complaint said all three plaintiffs received marketing materials advertising an introductory rate for a rental program, wherein RE/MAX would agree to rent the condo units to third parties.
Each plaintiff signed such an agreement between 2009 and 2014, they say. Owners are required to pay monthly assessments and fees for hotel-type amenities and Internet access.
The complaint says LSI charged renters additional surcharges without informing the unit owners. A dispute ensued regarding rent-collection terms.
The plaintiffs allege breach of fair dealing and fiduciary duty, intentional misrepresentation, unjust enrichment and fraudulent concealment. The suit alleges each of them suffered damages exceeding $10,000, and they are seeking compensatory and punitive damages, attorneys and experts fees and other expenses.
The plaintiffs are represented by Don Springmeyer, Justin Jones and Royi Moas of Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin inLas Vegas.
JetLiving removed the case to federal court under the Class Action Fairness Act.
