Department of Agriculture, et al. v. Appletree Marketing, LLC, 761 N.W.2d 277 (Mich. Ct. App. 2008)

(defendant deducted assessments from gross proceeds owed to apple orchards from which it purchased apples, but did not remit assessments to plaintiff and used the assessments to pay other expenses; plaintiffs’ conversion claim fails because state Agricultural Commodities Marketing Act provides exclusive remedy for violation of the Act).
