Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC691352    Hearing Date: August 20, 2020    Dept: 51

Tufeld Corp v. Beverly Hills Gateway, LP, BC691352

The Court has reviewed the notice of related cases regarding BC691352, presently before this Court, and 20STCV25920, now before Dept. 73, and declines to relate them for the following reasons:

Both cases seem to involve the same estoppel statements executed in 2007 and 2017. However, the recently filed 20STCV25920 matter only seeks declaratory relief regarding reimbursement rights arising from enforceability of the estoppel as a matter of contract, whereas BC691352 concerns possession of the subject property and valid lease terms as central issues. The estoppel statements are relevant in BC691352 only as an evidentiary matter, but 20STCV25920 requests statutory interpretation of those statements.

While determinations in BC691352 can have an impact on the extent/amount of reimbursement Tufeld has to pay to Chicago Title, 20STCV25920 only seeks to determine whether Tufeld has a duty to reimburse Chicago Title at all. Also, BC691352 is almost three years old and extensive discovery has taken place and several motions have been heard, whereas 20STCV25920 was filed less than 60 days ago. The relation of the cases could prejudice the defendant/cross-complainant BHG in BC691352, who is not even a party in the newly filed case.
