    Shelton v. Vance – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Shelton v. Vance, 106 Cal.App.2d 194 (1951), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiffs, the Sheltons, owned a parcel of real property with their brother, the defendant, Vance. The Sheltons sought to partition the property, but Vance objected, claiming that the partition would be inequitable. The court found that the partition was valid, but that the Sheltons were not entitled to a partition of the property in the form they requested. The court held that the partition should be made in a manner that would be equitable to all parties, and that the Sheltons should not be allowed to benefit from the partition at the expense of Vance.
