Hutton v. Gliksberg
California Court of Appeal
128 Cal. App. 3d 240 (1982)
Brian Hutton and Albert Ruddy (plaintiffs) entered into a contract to purchase certain real estate. Under the contract, Mike and Sheina Gliksberg (defendants) agreed to sell the property for $750,000, which would have been paid with $250,000 cash, a $400,000 bank loan, and a $100,000 additional loan from the Gliksbergs. The sale transaction was scheduled to close in April 1977. At that time, the prevailing interest rates were approximately 9.25 percent. Hutton and Ruddy complied with all obligations and were ready to close, but the Gliksbergs refused to complete the transaction. Hutton and Ruddy sued the Gliksbergs, seeking specific performance. The trial court ruled in favor of Hutton and Ruddy and entered an order requiring the Gliksbergs to convey the property. The trial court also awarded compensation to Hutton and Ruddy in the amount of $122,219 due to the increase in interest rates from 9.25 percent to 14 percent. The Gliksbergs appealed.
