In 2011, in the published opinion of Trident Labs, Inc v. Merrill Lynch Commercial Financial Corp. (2011) 200 Cal.App.4th 147, 154, Mr. Lozoya successfully argued to the Court of Appeals that big lending institutions waive the right to enforce a contractual forum selection clause when they litigate a case in a forum and after suffering adverse case rulings that affect their defense, cannot try to transfer the case to another State’s court (forum). The Court adopted the argument that under Code of Civil Procedure §410.30, a defendant cannot reserve doctrine of forum non-convenience of a contractual forum selection in its pleadings indefinitely and that Defendant’s conduct must be considered under “a reasonableness standard” which is “necessarily inferred.”
Mr. Lozoya’s resides in Los Angeles County, California with his wife, Robin J. Lozoya Esq., and their four children. Mr. Lozoya enjoys family, friends and golf.
