Ashlan Park Center v. Crow (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 2, 2015)

If this case had come out any other way, I'd have fallen on the floor in disbelief.

The Court of Appeal holds that when a corporation (or corporations) own a shopping center and the economy turns south, that does not constitute "reasonable cause and circumstances beyond [their] control" for not timely paying property taxes.  Hence there's no waiver of statutory penalties.


This lawsuit had no probability of success from the get-go.
