Geraghty v. Shalizi (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 10, 2017)

Nothing at all from the Ninth Circuit or the California appellate courts today.  It's a slow Monday.  I presume everyone's gearing up for huge Valentine's Day plans.

I nonetheless wanted to mention a case from Friday.  Because sometimes, when you're a party, you only have to read the first sentence of the opinion before knowing that you don't need (or want) to read much further.

Like when that first sentence is:

"Plaintiff and former tenant Brian Geraghty seeks to undo the deal he made with his former landlord, defendant Joseph Shalizi."

Yeah, that describes the case.  But it also tells you, by clear implication, who's going to win.
