vs.

Appellants and Appellees are members of Town Center Land, LLC (“Town Center”). Appellants filed a complaint seeking dissolution of Town Center and alleged claims of fraud and misrepresentation against all Appellees except Martin Blanc. The trial court concluded Appellants released all claims raised in the Town Center matter by executing a Final Agreement and Release, and judgment for the Appellees was filed.

Appellants state that trial court erred: when it held the Final Agreement and Release released all claims in Town Center matter except the request for dissolution; in failing to order a dissolution; in its finding that there was no clear written memorial of the parties’ agreement with respect to contributions to Town Center; and when it ordered that appellants pay the cost and attorneys fees of Town Center Land and appellees.
