Janes v. Goyne – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Janes v. Goyne, 80 Cal.App.2d 686 (1947), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a parcel of real property. The plaintiff, Janes, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Goyne, argued that the property was not subject to partition. The court ultimately held that the property was subject to partition, and that the plaintiff was entitled to a partition of the property. The court noted that the parties had agreed to a partition of the property in a prior agreement, and that the agreement was binding on both parties. The court also noted that the parties had failed to agree on a method of partition, and that the court would have to determine the method of partition. The court ultimately held that the property should be divided into two equal parts, with each party receiving one half of the property.
