Client remains in home of 25 years following a failed unlawful detainer action brought by his landlord
Clients Schulze, Don
Jones Day Los Angeles represented defendant Don Schulze in Matevosyan v. Schulze, an unlawful detainer action brought by Mr. Schulze's landlord. The landlord, immediately after purchasing Mr. Schulze's apartment building, attempted on three occasions to evict Mr. Schulze under the "owner move-in" exception to Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance. After the landlord's eviction attempts failed, the landlord stopped collecting rent from Mr. Schulze and brought an unlawful detainer action aimed at evicting Mr. Schulze for an alleged failure to pay rent. Once both sides took discovery and settlement negotiations failed, the matter went to trial. At the conclusion of the half-day bench trial, the court found for Mr. Schulze and dismissed with prejudice the landlord's unlawful detainer action, and Mr. Schulze remains in his home of 25 years. The team included Rick McKnight and Eric Enson.
