Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 8 F.3d 27 (9th Cir. 1993) Argued and Submitted Oct. 5, 1993. Decided Nov. 3, 1993

Before: SKOPIL, HALL, and RYMER, Circuit Judges


Interquest appeals the district court grant of defendants' motion for summary judgment. We affirm. The district court correctly concluded that there is no triable issue of fact that Interquest acted as a broker and not as a finder in the unsuccessful transaction. Accordingly, Interquest's contract claims are barred under Cal.Bus. & Prof.Code § 10136 (West 1987). We conclude that Interquest's fraud claims are also barred by section 10136, pursuant to the rational in Hydrotech Systems v. Oasis Waterpark, 277 Cal. Rptr. 517, 52 Cal.3d. 999 (1991).
