Division One of the Court of Appeals filed 2 new published opinions and announced the publication of 1 additional opinion on Monday, May 21, 2012:

1. Parrott-Horjes v. Rice
No. 65549-3
(May 21, 2012)
2012 Wash. App. LEXIS 1193

Areas: CRIMINAL LAW
DOMESTIC RELATIONS AND FAMILY LAW
PERSONAL INJURY AND INSURANCE LAW


Brief: The partner of the decedent is not precluded from inheriting under the slayer rule because she acted in self-defense when she committed the battery against the victim that ultimately resulted in the victim’s death.

2. MHM&F, LLC v. Pryor
No. 66027-6
(May 21, 2012)
2012 Wash. App. LEXIS 1196

Areas: COURTS
PROPERTY AND LAND USE LAW


Brief: In this case involving a hold-over mobile home park tenant evicted under the Manufactured/Mobile Home Landlord-Tenant Act (ch. 59.20 RCW) for his refusal to pay rent on his mobile home space, because the trial court had subject matter jurisdiction and substantial evidence supports its findings and the findings support its conclusions, the Court of Appeals affirms entry of the order for writ of restitution and judgment for unlawful detainer.

3. Morrison v. Dep’t of Labor & Indus.
No. 66168-0
(May 21, 2012)
2012 Wash. App. LEXIS 458

Brief: The filing fee for appealing citations for alleged violations of the electrical law under ch. 19.28 RCW does not violate the due process clause of the state and federal constitutions. The superior court possessed inherent power to reduce the appeal bond amount. The plaintiff is entitled to receive his $200 filing fee as the prevailing party.
