JAMES S BROWN VS. GONSALO DELATOBA

It is essential to an action for slander of title that the party claiming to be aggrieved by an alleged slanderous disparagement of title must plead and prove not only that the statements complained of were false, but that they were maliciously made with the intent to thereby disparage the title involved.

GREGG WELSH ET AL VS HADDON DILLON ET AL

Further, the issue of disparagement of title was not litigated in the nuisance action, nor was the issue of agency between Dillon and Gulf Horizons with respect to the disparagement of title cause of action. As the verdict form in the nuisance action plainly shows, the agency issue in that case involved whether Dillon was acting as Gulf Horizons’ agent when she interfered with Mr. Welsh’s quiet use and enjoyment of his property.

GAINQUICK LLC VS JTH HOLDINGS LLC

(Complaint ¶ 78.) (6) Plaintiff was harmed in that it suffered disparagement of title (Complaint ¶ 80) and incurred legal expenses (Complaint ¶ 84). (7) Plaintiff’s harm was proximately caused by CCA’s slander. (Complaint ¶¶ 80 and 84). The parties dispute the question whether malice is a necessary element of a slander of title claim. But as Gudger v. Manton (1943) 21 Cal.2d 537 explained, a publication without privilege or justification constitutes express or implied malice (Id. at p. 264).

(Civil Code § 47(c)) The 15th cause of action for negligent infliction of emotional distress fails because it is not an independent cause of action, but based on negligence and the negligence claim is insufficient.

On the scant showing made, the Court cannot find the designation of such an expert is warranted simply based on the Third Amended Complaint’s cause of action for disparagement of title. Indeed, it is hard to see how a new expert concerning title to property is suddenly needed for this cause of action when the cause of action for Quiet Title was already part of the case.
