Oren Bitan discusses “New Developments in Real Estate: What Litigators Need to Know” at USC Gould School of Law 2022 Real Estate Law and Business Forum on April 7, 2022.
Following extensive delays and court backlogs during the pandemic, litigation has resumed in full force, albeit in hybrid form. The pandemic, however, has led to a raft of litigation involving real estate. Our panelists will discuss litigation updates regarding pandemic related claims involving force majeure, attempts to invalidate contractual obligations in leases, loan documents, and purchase agreements, just compensation for inverse condemnation, and enforcement of court orders regarding real estate tenancies. The panel will also discuss receivership updates, including a number of high profile mega-mansion receiverships in Southern California.
