Fonner v. Martens – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Fonner v. Martens, 186 Cal. 623 (1921), the issue was whether a partition of a parcel of land was valid. The plaintiff, Fonner, owned a parcel of land with two other individuals, Martens and another. Martens and the other individual agreed to partition the land, with Martens taking the northern portion and the other individual taking the southern portion. Fonner was not consulted or informed of the partition, and he argued that the partition was invalid because it was not done with his consent. The court ultimately held that the partition was valid, as Fonner had not objected to the partition in a timely manner.
