I've always said that Gordon and I weren't in it for the money unless the money became gobs of money. The clearing price to have to deal with the headache of splitting money (based on what?) for us at least is astronomical.
Sorry for the late comment. A useful set of cases might be the H.R. Block cases, where taxpayers sued H.R. Block for refund anticipation loans. I think the theory was that H.R. Block was a fiduciary for the taxpayer, so steering them toward a loan from a lender who was paying H.R. Block was a conflict of interest. But, many states said that H.R. Block wasn't the taxpayers agent, although a few did. Doctors might be seen as more of a fiduciary to the patient, but maybe not for the purpose of arranging credit? Interesting.
