Jeff Tracy, Inc. v. City of Pico RiveraAnnotate this Case
The trial court found that a general contractor, Jeff Tracy, Inc., doing business as Land Forms Construction, did not have a valid license while performing work on a project for City of Pico Rivera. Therefore, the court ordered Land Forms to disgorge all compensation paid to it by the City. Land Forms appealed, contending that the trial court improperly denied it a jury trial. The court concluded that Land Forms was entitled to a jury trial on these issues, and therefore reversed the judgment. However, the court found that Land Forms is not entitled to any apportionment where Business and Professions Code section 7031, subdivision (b) does not allow apportionment as a matter of law. Accordingly, the court reversed the trial court's judgment.
