Fraud, misrepresentation, and breach of fiduciary duty claims run a close second in frequency to breach of contract claims.  They can involve difficult issues like the proof of a misrepresentation or the existence of a fiduciary duty, whether the defendant had a duty to disclose information, the importance of a misrepresentation or omission, whether the claimant justifiably relied on the misrepresentation or omission, and whether the misrepresentation or omission caused the plaintiff to suffer damages and, if so, how much.
