Here’s the story: Henry S. Miller was the broker for Jim Flaven- the beneficiary of a multi-million dollar trust fund. Flaven wanted to buy $100 million in Texas properties. So the Henry S. Miller broker went to work. The broker arranged for Flaven to buy a number of properties from BNC Properties. One problem (and it’s a big one): Jim Flaven is a con artist and never intended to follow through with the purchase. So, BNC sued Henry S. Miller and was awarded $8 million.
