Plaintiff filed a complaint in San Francisco County Superior Court, claiming that his property manager had impermissibly evicted him and taken his personal property. Plaintiff also claimed the conditions of his apartment breached the implied warranty of habitability. Charles Redfield of Low, Ball & Lynch represented the property manager. Plaintiff had been evicted from his apartment pursuant to a stipulated judgment, after the property management company had filed an unlawful detainer action against plaintiff. In a published opinion, the Court of Appeal held that plaintiff’s claims were barred by res judicata. The official title of the case is Needelman v. Dewolf Realty Co. (2015) 239 Cal.App.4th 750. The California Supreme Court denied plaintiff’s petition for review.
