Barba v. Barba – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Barba v. Barba, 103 Cal.App.2d 395 (1951), the issue was whether a partition of property between two siblings was valid. The siblings had inherited the property from their father, and the brother had taken possession of the property without the consent of the sister. The sister argued that the partition was invalid because it was not done in accordance with the law. The court found that the partition was valid, as the brother had acted in good faith and had not acted in a manner that would have been detrimental to the sister’s interests. The court also noted that the brother had taken possession of the property in order to protect it from creditors, which was a valid reason for the partition.
