Case Conclusion Date:February 15, 2012
Practice Area:Real Estate
Outcome:Client's demurrer sustained without leave. Confidential settlement.
Description:My client, a real estate broker, purchased a house and lot at a foreclosure sale. Soon after, another lien holder purchased the property at its own foreclosure sale and asserted lien priority which, if granted, would have wiped-out my client's interest in the property. My client ultimately was able to enter into a confidential settlement when the court sustained his demurrer to the other lien holder's cross-complaint to quiet title.
