Plaintiff?s claims were based on the fact that the parties had met several times over a seven-month period to discuss plaintiff?s potential role in Chase Medical as well as plaintiff?s potential investment in a new medical technology Chase Medical was developing. The plaintiff appealed the trial court?s grant of summary judgment for Chase Medical. The parties settled the matter post-appeal on terms favorable to Chase Medical.
