Tarrant Bell Prop., LLC. v. Sup. Ct. , No. A125496
In a case brought by residents of a mobile home park against the park owners for failing to properly maintain common areas and facilities and for being subjected to substandard living conditions, trial court's denial of defendant's motion to compel judicial reference is affirmed as a trial court has the discretion to refuse to enforce a reference agreement under the circumstances in the case, or related considerations of judicial economy, and the court did not abuse that discretion.
