Baxter v. Peterson, B188676

In a dispute over an oral agreement to lease a house for two years, for tenant to renovate the house at his own expense, and for tenant to have the option to buy the house, judgment for plaintiff-tenant on landlord's refusal to sell the house is reversed to the extent the trial court erroneously instructed the jury on both liability and damages issues.
