Demetris v. Demetris – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Demetris v. Demetris, 125 Cal.App.2d 440 (1954), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of a family-owned property. The siblings had inherited the property from their father, who had died without a will. The siblings had agreed to partition the property, but the agreement was never formalized. The court found that the siblings had an implied agreement to partition the property, and that the agreement was binding. The court also found that the siblings had a duty to partition the property in accordance with the agreement, and that the failure to do so constituted a breach of contract. The court ordered the siblings to partition the property in accordance with the agreement.
