Publisher Description

1 In this review of a court of appeals decision that reversed and remanded to the circuit court to dismiss plaintiffs claims for breach of fiduciary duty based on a statute of limitations defense, we are asked to determine whether a claim for breach of fiduciary duty of loyalty must be intentional, or whether it can also be based on negligence. We conclude that the circuit court found that the Trustees of Journal Employees Stock (Trustees) created circumstances that adversely affected the plaintiffs interests by giving plaintiffs incomplete information relative to plaintiffs holdings, which we conclude is a breach of the fiduciary duty of loyalty, an intentional tort. As a result, the two-year statute of limitations found in Wis. Stat. § 893.57 (2003-04), which is applicable to intentional torts, requires dismissal of the lawsuit. Accordingly, we affirm the decision of the court of appeals.
