Poizner v. Fremont General Corp., B183974

Judgment dismissing complaint that alleged misappropriation of funds is reversed as the court erred by: 1) taking judicial notice of the enforceability and proper interpretation a letter agreement; 2) by holding that the complaint fails to allege facts sufficient to constitute a claim for conversion of intangible personal property; and 3) the sustaining of the demurrer cannot be affirmed on other grounds, with the sole exception of count for violation of Insurance Code section 1215.5, which fails to state a proper cause of action.
