Plaintiff, who had courted defendant for six years and had proposed marriage, conveyed a lot and house to defendant after various discussions and immediately upon the written suggestion of defendant. Later their romance terminated when she went abroad and plaintiff turned his attention to another woman. In a suit to cancel deed to the premises, held, that because of the confidential relationship which had existed between the parties and in order to prevent defendant from "completing her fraud," defendant held title as constructive trustee for plaintiff. Kausky v. Koten, (Wash. 1947) 179 P. (2d) 950.
