They filed suit against the other shareholders Michael Harris and Kenneth Hoxie, and the accountant who worked for all of the them, John Verchota. The Millers alleged that Verchota had breached a duty that he owed them. They claimed that at Harris instruction, Verchota had adjusted Claimso's books to maximize the Millers' financial liabilities, falsely reflect income to them, without actually transferring that income, and unfairly disadvantage them compared to other shareholders. Which duty are the Millers referring to? If the allegations can be proven, did Verchota breach this duty? Explain.
