Moncada v. West Coast Quartz Corp., H036728

In a dispute between plaintiffs, former employees of defendant-company and defendants, shareholders of defendant-company, over a promised retirement bonus that was never paid, judgment for defendants is reversed, where: 1) the first amended complaint states a cause of action for promissory fraud, breach of contract, and promissory estoppel; but 2) the alleged conduct as stated is not extreme or outrageous to support a cause of action for intentional infliction of emotional distress, nor do they sufficiently allege negligent misrepresentation, and 3) estoppel in pais cannot be stated as an independent cause of action in California.
