Satchmed Plaza Owners Assoc. v. UWMC Hospital, G038119

In a property dispute, trial court decision holding that defendant was not required to offer plaintiff the right to purchase an assignment of 12 leased units is affirmed where: 1) the trial court did not err in ruling on the basis of the two-thirds vote requirement; 2) the 12 leases would have terminated automatically on any attempt by plaintiff to exercise the right of first refusal; 3) plaintiff waived the right of first refusal with respect to the 12 leased units; 3) plaintiff was precluded from exercising the right of first refusal because of unclean hands; and 4) plaintiff's failure to apply the right of first refusal in a uniform, nondiscriminatory, and fair manner rendered the right unenforceable.
