COMPLAINT

STATE OF MINNESOTA
COUNTY OF ST. LOUIS
DISTRICT COURT
SIXTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
Court File No.:69DU-CV-17-156
Case Type: 3B. Other Contracts

PAIGE STORSTEEN and NAOMI STORSTEEN Plaintiffs,
vs
MICHAEL BERGHORN and JOHN BERGHORN,
Defendants.

Plaintiffs state and allege as follows:
  1. Plaintiff Paige Storsteen at the present time is a resident of Duluth, St. Louis County, Minnesota.
  2. Plaintiff Naomi Storsteen at the present time is a resident of Duluth, St. Louis County, Minnesota. Naomi Storsteen is the grandmother of Paige Storsteen.
  3. Defendant Michael Berghorn at the present time is a resident of Ironwood, Gogebic County, Michigan.
  4. Defendant John Berghorn at the present time is a resident of Barrington, Lake County, Illinois. John Berghorn is the father of Michael Berghorn.
  5. Plaintiff Paige Storsteen and Defendant Michael Berghorn had a romantic relationship and began cohabiting in the fall of 2009. They last cohabited in August of 2015. Paige Storsteen had been a resident of Duluth, MN. Michael Berghorn had been a resident of Hurley, Wisconsin.
  6. In September of 2010, Plaintiff Paige Storsteen learned that she was pregnant and that Michael Berghorn was the father. Paige Storsteen informed Michael Berghorn about that at that time. Beginning in about September of 2010, Michael Berghorn and Paige Storsteen decided that they should purchase a house in which to live together in with their child. Michael Berghorn and Paige Storsteen planned to be married. Their child, Grace Naomi Berghorn was born on April 27, 2011, in Duluth, Minnesota.
  7. At the time that Paige Storsteen learned that she was pregnant with Michael Berghorn’s child, Michael Berghorn stated that he was married but was in the process of being divorced. Michael Berghorn stated that he could not put the house in his name and should not have any ownership interest in the house due to the current marriage and his pending divorce. Michael Berghorn, and his father, John Berghorn, suggested that the house be purchased for Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn and put in the name of John Berghorn temporarily so that
it was not an asset of Michael Berghorn and since it would be faster and easier that way.
  8. During the fall of 2010, Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn previewed a number of houses in the Hurley, Wisconsin and Ironwood, Michigan area as suitable residences for them. On some of those visits, the parents of Paige Storsteen went to the area of Hurley, Wisconsin and Ironwood, Michigan to help their daughter and Michael Berghorn look for a suitable house for the two of them.
  9. During the fall of 2010, Michael Berghorn came to Duluth, Minnesota approximately eight times to meet with Paige Storsteen and her parents and her grandmother, Naomi Storsteen. The purposes were often to discuss the upcoming child and to discuss the house that Michael Berghorn and Paige Storsteen would buy, or that would be bought for them and which would be put in their names at a later time. During these discussions, Michael Berghorn and Paige
Storsteeen met with Paige Storsteen’s grandmother, Naomi Storsteen, several times.
 10. When Naomi Storsteen learned that Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn were going to buy a house, she asked Paige Storsteen if they needed help with a loan for a downpayment. The initial house plans were to buy a smaller house which would have a smaller down payment. However, Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn ultimately decided to try to purchase the house located at N10414 Mount Zion Drive, Ironwood, Michigan. A downpayment of approximately $42,000 was needed. Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn asked Naomi Storsteen if she could loan them the $42,000 to help with the downpayment. She agreed to do so.
  11. On November 10, 2010, Naomi Storsteen was in Duluth, Minnesota. At the request of Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn for help with the downpayment on their house, Naomi Storsteen had her US Bank account in Duluth, MN wire the sum of $42,000 to Paige Storsteen’s Wells Fargo account in Duluth, MN. Paige Storsteen then got a cashier’s check
from her Duluth, MN Wells Fargo account. She got that cashier’s check printed at the Wells Fargo bank in Palatine, Illinois on November 2, 2010. The amount of that check was $42,000, a copy is attached as Exhibit “A”. That check was written to Michael Berghorn’s father, John Berghorn, and was given to Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn on or about November 2, 2010. John Berghorn and Michael Berghorn suggested that the house be put in John Berghorn’s name so that it would not cause problems with Michael Berghorn with his divorce or cause problems with his other affairs. Paige Storsteen did not object to the house being put in John Berghorn’s name, with the understanding that the house was really her house and Michael Berhorn’s house and that it would later be put in their names jointly. It was Paige Storsteen’s and Naomi Storsteen’s specific understanding that the $42,000 check was a loan. There was never any understanding that the $42,000 check was a gift to Michael Berghorn or a gift to John Berghorn. It was always the understanding that Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen would be repaid that loan of $42,000.
 12. The house was purchased in December of 2012 with that down payment. Paige Storsteen attended the closing of this house, which she was promised was to be her house as well as Michael Berghorn’s house. The house was put in the name of John Berghorn. John Berghorn accepted the check from Minnesota as a loan and applied that to the purchase of the house title in his own name, with the promise that Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen would be repaid the $42,000 and that the house would be put in Paige Storsteen’s name.
  13. Paige Storsteen and Michael Berghorn did not get married and are not married. Michael Berghorn acknowledged parentage of their daughter, Grace Naomi Berghorn. Paige Storsteen moved back to the Duluth, Minnesota area with their daughter in August of 2015.
  14. Michael Berghorn went to Duluth, Minnesota and met with Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen, at least twice after December, 2012, about the $42,000 loan. On each of those occasions Michael Berghorn paid Naomi Storsteen $1,000 toward the $42,000 loan. One time the payment was made by way of a check for $1,000 on November 30, 2011. The other time it was made through a payment of $1,000 in cash to Naomi Storsteen. Since these two payments made by Michael Berghorn in Duluth, Minnesota, he has not made any other
payments in repayment of that loan. Michael Berghorn has repeatedly stated that he would repay this loan. John Berghorn has not made any payments on repayment of the loan. Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen have demanded that this loan be repaid.
  15. The house remains in the name of John Berghorn. John Berghorn has been unjustly enriched by his receipt of this $42,000 loan, and his use of that loan to purchase a house in his name, and his refusal to repay the loan and put the house in Paige Storsteen’s name.
  16. Michael Berghorn has been unjustly enriched by having possession of this house without repayment of the $42,000 loan and not by repaying the $42,000 loan.
 17. There was not sufficient consideration for the payment to John Berghorn of $42,000 if the house was not to be put in Paige Storsteen’s name, at least as a joint owner.
 18. John Berghorn and Michael Berghorn have breached their contract with Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen. They have breached their contract with Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen that the $42,000 would be paid in full and that the house would be put in Paige Storsteen’s name.
 19. John Berghorn and Michael Berghorn have defrauded Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen by accepting the payment of $42,000 and not repaying that in full and not putting the house in the name of Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen.
  20. In addition to the promises to repay Naomi Storsteen the $42,000 loan, and to put the house in Paige Storsteen’s name as a condition of making and accepting that loan, Naomi Storsteen also is a third-party beneficiary of this transaction and is entitled to enforce those promises.
  21. Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen are entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and costs as provided by law.
 22. This obligation in the sum of $42,000 owed to Naomi Storsteen accrues interest pursuant to the applicable Minnesota Statutes at a minimum of 6% simple interest per year.
 23. It is unconscionable that Defendants would receive $42,000 from Plaintiffs for the purpose of purchasing a house in Paige Storsteen’s name, and for Defendants to not repay that loan and place the house in Plaintiff’s Paige Storsteen’s name.
BREACH OF CONTRACT
 24. Defendants Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn breached their contract with Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen to repay the $42,000.
 25. Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn breached their contract with Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen by not making Paige Storsteen a joint owner of the home.
FRAUD
 26. Defendants Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn defrauded Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen.
 27. Defendants made a false representation that the house would be placed in Paige Storsteen’s name, which representation was a false representation.
 28. Defendants made a false representation that they would repay the $42,000 loan, which representation was a false representation about that future fact that the loan would be repaid since only $2,000 has been repaid.
  29. The false representations made by Defendants were material and susceptible of knowledge since they were in control of placing the house in Paige Storsteen’s name and also were in control of repaying the loan, and did not do so.
 30. The Defendants knew the representations were false, or made the representations without knowing whether they were true or false, since they have had ample opportunity to place the house into Paige Storsteen’s name or to repay the loan. They have not done so. They have only paid $2,000 toward the loan.
 31. The Defendants have relied on their misrepresentations as an incentive to receive the loan from Plaintiff in the sum of $42,000 to be used as a down payment for the purchase of the house.
 32. The Plaintiffs have reasonably relied on the representations of Defendants that the house would be put into Paige Storsteen’s name and that the loan will be repaid.
 33. Plaintiffs have suffered damages as a result of the misrepresentation of Defendants, since Defendants have not repaid the $42,000 loan in full and as a result of not having the house placed in the name of Paige Storsteen.
 34. Defendants therefore have defrauded Plantiffs and Plaintiffs are entitled to damages due to that fraud.
PUNITIVE DAMAGES
 35. Plaintiffs will request permission from the Court to formally plead a claim for punitive damages as a result of Defendants’ fraud and unjust enrichment and other grounds which would potentially entitle Plaintiffsa to an award of punitive damages.
MORTGAGE
 36. It was represented by the Defendants that they would place the house, purchased with the $42,000 loan, in the name of Paige Storsteen. They have not done so. Plaintiffs have long demanded repayment. $40,000 of that loan has not been repaid. Plaintiffs are entitled to interest and an equitable mortgage on that real property.
PROMISSORY ESTOPPEL
  37. Defendants Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn promised that, if Paige Storsteen individually, or with the assistance of Naomi Storsteen, paid $42,000 towards the
downpayment and purchase of the house, that Defendants Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn would repay the loan and would place the house in Paige Storsteen’s name. Plaintiffs Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen did reasonably rely on those promises. Defendants are promissorily estopped from not repaying the $42,000 loan to Plaintiffs and from not placing the house in Paige Storsteen’s name. Defendant Michael Berghorn has paid only $2,000. The Defendants are liable for the remaining $40,000, and must put the house in Paige Storsteen’s name and are liable for such other damages are provided by law.
JURISDICTION
 38. Defendants Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn are subject to the jurisdiction of the Courts of Minnesota. The agreement to make the loan to Michael Berghorn and John Berghorn was negotiated and was made in Minnesota. The loan was wired from Naomi Storsteen’s Minnesota bank account to Paige Storsteen’s Minnesota Wells Fargo bank account. Paige Storsteen wrote the check to John Berghorn from her Minnesota Wells Fargo bank account.
 39. During his many visits to Minnesota, and while in Minnesota, Michael Berghorn represented that he and his father John Berghorn would repay the $42,000 loan, and that they would put the house in Paige Storsteen’s name.
  40. Michael Berghorn, while traveling to Minnesota, met with Paige Storsteen and Naomi Storsteen numerous times. During the course of those visits in Minnesota he made two payments to Naomi Storsteeen of $1,000 each.

REQUEST FOR RELIEF
WHEREFORE
Plaintiffs request that the Court enter Judgment against the Defendants, jointly and severally as follows:
 1. Enter Judgment in favor of Plaintiffs and against Defendants for each of the claims asserted in the Complaint;
 2. Enter Judgment in Favor of Plaintiffs, and against Defendants in the amount of $42,000 plus interest, minus credit for the two payments of $1,000 each which were made by Michael Berghorn;
 3. For an award of Plaintiff’s costs and disbursements and attorney’s fees as permitted by law;
  4. For an Order and Judgment establishing an equitable mortgage, on the real property, which is also the subject of this lawsuit, in the amount of $42,000; and
 5. For such other relief that may be just and proper.

City of Proctor Notice

Ordinance No.  01-17

An Ordinance granting Minnesota Energy Resources, a subsidiary of WEC Energy Group, a Wisconsin corporation, its successors and assigns, a natural gas franchise and the authority to construct, operate, maintain, and extend a natural gas distribution plant and system, and granting the right to use the streets, alleys, and other public places within the present or future corporate limits of the City of Proctor, Minnesota

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of Proctor, Minnesota, as follows:

FRANCHISE GRANTED  
The City of Proctor, Minnesota, (hereinafter referred to as “Grantor”) hereby grants a non-exclusive franchise to Minnesota Energy Resources, a subsidiary of WEC Energy Group, a Wisconsin corporation, (hereinafter called “Grantee”), its lessees, successors and assigns. Grantee is hereby granted the right, privilege, franchise, permission and authority to lay, construct, install, maintain, operate and extend in, along, over or across the present and future streets, alleys, avenues, bridges, public rights-of-way and public places as are now within the present or future limits of said Grantor, a natural gas distribution system and all facilities necessary for the purpose of supplying natural gas or processed gas for all purposes to the inhabitants of said Grantor and consumers in the vicinity thereof, and for the distribution of natural gas from or through said Grantor to points beyond the limits thereof.  Such facilities shall include, but not be limited to, all mains, services, pipes, conduits and appliances necessary or convenient for transmitting, transporting, distributing and supplying natural gas for all purposes for which it may be used, and to do all other things necessary and proper in providing natural gas service to the inhabitants of Grantor and in carrying on such business.

TERM
The rights and privileges granted by this Ordinance shall remain in effect for a period of Twenty-five (25) years from the effective date of this Ordinance.

GOVERNING RULES AND REGULATIONS
This Ordinance is granted subject to all conditions, limitations and immunities now provided for, or as hereafter amended, and applicable to the operations of a public utility, by State or Federal law.  The rates to be charged by Grantee for service within the present or future corporate limits of Grantor and the rules and regulations regarding the character, quality and standards of service to be furnished by Grantee shall be under the jurisdiction and control of such regulatory body or bodies as may, from time to time, be vested by law with authority and jurisdiction over the rates, regulations and quality and standards of service to be supplied by Grantee.  Provided however, should any judicial, regulatory or legislative body, having proper jurisdiction, take any action that precludes Grantee from recovering from its customers any cost associated with services provided hereunder, then Grantee and Grantor shall renegotiate the terms of this Ordinance in accordance with the action taken, so as to allow Grantee to be made whole economically.  In determining the rights and duties of the Grantee, the terms of this franchise Ordinance shall take precedence over any conflicting terms or requirements contained in any other Ordinance enacted by the Grantor.

If an energy supplier is unable to furnish an adequate supply of energy due to an emergency, an order or decision of a public regulatory body, or other acts beyond the control of the Grantee, then the Grantee shall have the right and authority to adopt reasonable rules and regulations limiting, curtailing or allocating extensions of service or supply of energy to any customers or prospective customers, and withholding the supply of energy to new customers, provided that such rules and regulations shall be uniform as applied to each class of customers or prospective customers, and shall be non-discriminatory as between communities receiving service from the Grantee.

CONSTRUCTION AND
MAINTENANCE OF
COMPANY FACILITIES
Any pavements, sidewalks or curbing taken up and any and all excavations made shall be done in such a manner as to cause only such inconvenience to the inhabitants of Grantor and to the general public as is reasonably necessary; and repairs and replacements shall be made promptly by Grantee, leaving such properties in as good as condition as existed immediately prior to excavation.  

Grantee agrees that for the term of this grant, it will use its best efforts to maintain facilities and equipment sufficient to meet the current and future energy requirements of Grantor, its inhabitants and industries.  While maintaining its facilities and equipment, Grantee shall obtain permits as required by ordinance, except that in emergency situations, Grantee shall take immediate unilateral actions as it determines are necessary to protect the public health, safety, and welfare; in which case, Grantee shall notify Grantor as soon as reasonably possible.

Grantor will give Grantee reasonable notice of plans for street improvements where paving or resurfacing of a permanent nature is involved that affect Grantee’s facilities.  The notice shall contain the nature and character of the improvements, the rights-of-way upon which the improvements are to be made, the extent of the improvements and the time when the Grantor will start the work, and, if more than one right-of-way is involved, the order in which this work is to proceed.  The notice shall be given to the Grantee a sufficient length of time, considering seasonable working conditions, in advance of the actual commencement of the work to permit the Grantee to make any additions, alterations, or repairs to its facilities.

EXTENSION OF COMPANY
FACILITIES
Upon receipt and acceptance of a valid application for service, Grantee shall, subject to its own economic feasibility criteria, make reasonable extensions of its distribution facilities to serve customers located within the current or future corporate limits of Grantor.  

RELOCATION OF COMPANY FACILITIES
If Grantor elects to change the grade of or otherwise alter any street, alley, avenue, bridge, public right-of-way or public place for a public purpose, Grantee, upon reasonable notice from Grantor, shall remove and relocate its facilities or equipment situated in the public rights-of-way, if such removal is necessary to prevent interference and not merely for the convenience of the Grantor, at the cost and expense of Grantee.  If Grantor orders or requests Grantee to relocate its facilities or equipment for the primary benefit of a commercial or private project, or as a result of the initial request of a commercial or private developer or other non-public entity, and such removal is necessary to prevent interference and not merely for the convenience of the Grantor or other right-of-way user, Grantee shall receive payment for the cost of such relocation as a precondition to relocating its facilities or equipment.  Grantor shall consider reasonable alternatives in designing its public works projects so as not arbitrarily to cause Grantee unreasonable additional expense in exercising its authority under this section.  Grantor shall also provide a reasonable alternative location for Grantee’s facilities. Grantor shall give Grantee written notice of vacating of a public right-of-way.  Vacating of a public right-of-way shall not deprive the Grantee of its right to operate and maintain existing facilities, until the reasonable cost of relocating the same are first paid to the Grantee.

Any person or corporation desiring to move a building or other structure along, or to make any unusual use of any street, alley, avenue, bridge, public right-of-way or public place which shall interfere with the facilities or equipment of the Grantee, shall first give notice to the Grantor and the Grantee and a pay a sum sufficient to cover the expense and damage incident to the moving of Grantee’s facilities and equipment.  
FRANCHISE FEE
During the term of the Ordi-nance/Franchise hereby granted, the Grantor has the right to impose a franchisee fee by a separate ordinance adopted by the City Council, which ordinance may not be adopted until at least ninety (90) days after Notice enclosing such a proposed ordinance has been served upon the Grantee by certified mail. Grantee shall notify the Minnesota Public Utility Commission. Grantee shall not begin collecting the franchise fee until the first full billing cycle after at least sixty (60) days after said notice has been provided to the Minnesota Public Utility Commission.
CONFIDENTIAL
INFORMATION    
Grantor acknowledges that certain information it might request pursuant to this franchise may be of a proprietary and confidential nature.  If Grantee requests that any information provided by Grantee to Grantor be kept confidential due to such proprietary or commercial value, Grantor and its employees, agents, and representatives shall maintain the confidentiality of that information, to the extent allowed by law.  If Grantor is requested or required by legal or administrative process to disclose any such confidential information, Grantor shall promptly notify Grantee of such request or requirement so that Grantee may seek an appropriate protective order or other relief.  Grantor shall use all reasonable efforts to ensure that the confidentiality of Grantee’s confidential information is maintained.

FORCE MAJEURE
It shall not be a breach or default under this franchise if either party fails to perform its obligations hereunder due to Force Majeure.  Force Majeure shall include, but not be limited to, the following:  1) physical events such as acts of God, landslides, lightning, earthquakes, fires, freezing, storms, floods, washouts, explosions, breakage or accident or necessity of repairs to machinery, equipment or distribution or transmission lines; 2) acts of others such as strikes, work-force stoppages, riots, sabotage, insurrections or wars; 3) governmental actions such as necessity for compliance with any court order, law, statute, ordinance, executive order, or regulation promulgated by a governmental authority having jurisdiction; and any other causes, whether of the kind herein enumerated or otherwise not reasonably within the control of the affected party to prevent or overcome.  Each party shall make reasonable efforts to avoid Force Majeure and to resolve such event as promptly as reasonably possible once it occurs in order to resume performance; provided, however, that this provision shall not obligate a party to settle any labor strike.

HOLD HARMLESS
Grantee, during the term of this Ordinance, agrees to save harmless Grantor from and against all claims, demands, losses and expenses arising directly out of the negligence of Grantee, its employees or agents, in the constructing, operating, and maintaining of distribution and transmission facilities or appliances of Grantee; provided, however, that Grantee need not save harmless Grantor from claims, demands, losses and expenses arising out of the negligence of Grantor, its employees or agents.

SEVERABILITY
If any clause, sentence or section of this Ordinance is deemed invalid by any judicial, regulatory or legislative body having proper jurisdiction, the remaining provisions shall not be affected.  

NON WAIVER
Any waiver of any obligation or default under this franchise shall not be construed as a waiver of any future defaults, whether of like or different character.

REPEAL CONFLICTING
ORDINANCES
This ordinance, when accepted by Grantee as provided below, shall constitute the entire agreement between the Grantor and the Grantee relating to this franchise and the same shall supersede all prior ordinances pertaining to this franchise agreement, and any terms and conditions of such prior ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict herewith are hereby repealed. Ordinance No. 01-17 of the City of Proctor, Minnesota, is hereby repealed as of the effective date hereof.
