Highest Wrongful Eviction Settlement in California History

Jun 6, 2023 | Hooshmand Law Group In the News, San Francisco Eviction, Successes, Tenant Rights

The Hooshmand Law Group is proud to announce the highest wrongful eviction settlement in California history. In 2017 a family was evicted from their rent controlled home pursuant to an owner move in eviction. In San Francisco an individual who buys a property can evict the tenants if they intend to occupy the property in good faith. However, if the goal of displacement is financial gain then the eviction is prohibited. After reviewing the eviction and talking with our clients, it appeared that the eviction might be fraudulent. Upon conducting discovery and further investigation, along with a ruling by the trial court that the crime-fraud exception to the attorney client privilege existed, significant evidence was uncovered of the defendants’ plan to evict the tenants for financial gain. We appreciated the privilege of representing this family who did a great job at persevering through a difficult time.
