Schorr Law represents seven plaintiffs suing a developer, M. Jorjezian Investments, Inc. and the developer’s attorney, Yeznik Kazandjian for breach of contract and fraud based on the sale of vacant land in Santa Clarita, California. On June 8, 2010, the Los Angeles County Superior Court awarded terminating sanctions against M. Jorjezian Investments, Inc. and attorney Yeznik Kazandjian of Glendale, California for their overall abuse of the discovery process. The Court noted that this was as compelling of a case for terminating sanctions as it had seen in the last 5 years.
Terminating sanctions are discovery sanctions that allow the court to either dismiss the plaintiff’s case or enter the default of an answering defendant. In this case, Hormozian v. M. Jorjezian Investments, Inc., et al., the Court entered the default of defendants M. Jorjezian Investments, Inc. and Yeznik Kazandjian just over 2 years after the plaintiffs’ commenced the litigation.
