In not sharing information about the new lease with Meinhard, Chief Justice Cardozo indicates that Salmon's conduct "excluded his coadventurer from any chance to compete, from any chance to enjoy the opportunity for benefit that had come to him alone by virtue of his agency."

, treated essentially as partners, who had leased and were operating a hotel.
Salmon (81) the New York Court of Appeals considered whether fiduciary duties were present among "coadventurers
" in a business arrangement.
What better way to encourage subjects truly to be "coadventurers
" in medical science than to give them a voice in determining the very terms of that adventure?
