Contracts Keyed to Blum
Lindner v. Meadow Gold Dairies, Inc.
Lindner leased property in Hawaii to Meadow Gold Dairies, Inc. (MGD). The lease allowed MGD to renew the lease for up to fifteen years and required MGD to pay up to five years of the current price of rent if MGD terminated prior to the expiration of the lease. MGD assigned the lease to Southern Food Group, L.P. (SFG), but Meadow Gold remained liable under the lease. Before the renewal, Mandalay Properties Hawaii, Inc. (Mandalay) purchased property near MGD called Tara Plantation, designed to be a home for Peter Guber (Guber). MGD closed the farm and terminated the lease 13 years early after Guber complained of contamination of his land from the dairy farm. Lindner sued MGD and SFG for breach of contract when MGD did not pay the liquidated damages. Lindner moved for summary judgment.
