Marathon Petroleum Company, LP [II] v. Future Fuels of America, LLC, 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 71814 (E.D. Mich. 5-23-12)
An allegation that the franchisor has breached the franchise agreement is necessary for a franchisee to assert a PMPA claim for constructive termination.
Incorrect spelling of franchisee's name on envelope did not invalidate a notice of termination, which was sent to the proper address via certified mail. Further, the franchisee's apparent refusal to accept and receive the notice did not render it invalid.
