Leonard v. Lynn


No. 2009AP2026 (WI Ct. App., 2010)


Unjust enrichment claim affirmed for half of assets accumulated during cohabitation. It is not necessary for plaintiff to have a direct, income-producing effort. Rather, one party may facilitate the accumulation of assets by freeing the other party to focus on more direct income-producing activities. The facilitating behavior can be viewed equally at the direct activity. (Not published, but citeable.)
