CLTA Counsel argued before the California Court of Appeal last week in the case of Meisterlin v. CLTA. The Plaintiff is appealing a Superior Court order granting a demurrer filed by the CLTA. Counsel for CLTA argued before the court of appeal that the case is really simply a title insurance coverage issue between the title insurer and Meisterlin. The CLTA believes there is no basis for naming the CLTA in the lawsuit and is hopeful that the court of appeal agrees and upholds the decision of the Superior Court. A ruling on the appeal is expected by mid-January.
