Defense Win in Real Estate Rights of Ownership case
Jason Murphy fully defensed multiple quiet title and fraud claims for the owner of commercial real estate in San Mateo County this past month. The matter involved a multi-million dollar apartment complex that was owned by our client since 2008. A dispute arose in 2014 concerning the ownership rights to that property, including fraud allegations and multiple quiet title claims to the property. The matter was heard before Judge Nancy Fineman in San Mateo Superior Court. Following the trial, judgement was entered in favor of the defense on all of the plaintiffs’ causes of action. Moreover, Jason was successful in obtaining quiet title in favor of the client on the cross complaint. The litigation had been ongoing for several years, including numerous intervenors, Lis pendens filings, appeals and ultimately trial.
