Yoo v. Jho, B189586

In case involving a contract for the sale of a business dealing in counterfeit goods, judgment awarding partial rescission to plaintiff in an attempt to do equity is reversed where: 1) the illegal object of the contract precluded any recovery; 2) the trial court should have raised the issue of illegality on its own motion; and 3) the contract's illegality precluded enforcement of an attorney fee provision therein.
