Formosa Corp. v. Rogers – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Formosa Corp. v. Rogers, 108 Cal.App.2d 397 (1951), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two shareholders of a corporation, Formosa Corporation, over the ownership of certain real property. The plaintiff, Formosa Corporation, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Rogers, argued that the property was owned by the corporation and not subject to partition. The court ultimately held that the property was owned by the corporation and not subject to partition. The court reasoned that the property was held in trust for the benefit of the corporation and its shareholders, and that the shareholders had no right to partition the property. The court also noted that the corporation had the right to manage and control the property, and that the shareholders had no right to interfere with the corporation’s management of the property.
