CALG’s Kelly Woodruff and Jennifer Teaford have prevailed in the California Court of Appeal’s First District in an appeal of an order partitioning a parcel of real property.

The dispute involved a multi-unit residential income property in Richmond, California. The plaintiffs filed suit in 2016 to exercise their statutory right to end their co-tenancy through partition by sale. The trial court granted summary adjudication in the plaintiffs’ favor, but, long before CALG became involved, the Court of Appeal reversed and remanded for further proceedings.

On remand, the plaintiffs again successfully moved for summary adjudication. This time, they hired CALG to defend that ruling on appeal. The court agreed with CALG’s characterization of the record and the law and affirmed.

The case is Hadar v. Luria, and the opinion is available here.
