Dispute Involving Contractual Issues Between Business Partner and Guarantor

In this case we defended a national real estate management company and certain partnerships that were sued in Kentucky regarding contractual issues by a business partner and guarantor. There was already similar litigation pending on similar issues in California. This case was essentially a “race to the courthouse” to determine which state would adjudicate the legal issues. After substantial motion practice, the Court granted our request to abstain from adjudicating the Kentucky case in order to let the California litigation proceed. The California litigation was subsequently settled.
