I have read the entire case. JBCase: Glende Motor Company v. Superior Court, 159 Cal.App.3d 389, 205 Cal. Rptr. 682Facts: Glende Motor Company filed a claim with their insurance after there had been a fire at a leased property. Glende Motor Company claims that they got charged for insurance that would cover the fire, but it was unpaid. They want that money back and sued the insurance company for the money. The insurance company tried to get out of paying back the money so they did and “Offer to Compromise Before Trial”. If Glende Motor Company were to take that money they wanted a new contract wrote up and signed. Glende filed a “Plaintiff’s Notice of Acceptance of Offer to Comprosise” to the courts as well as to the insurance company. The insurance’s bank took back the offer tocompromise after the acceptance had already been filed. Glende is in court because they feel the offer should have been valid since both parties had agreed to the compromise.Issue: When changed were made to the compromise by Glende, did it make the compromise no longer valid?Holding: (Vote: 6-3) Yes: Since Glende changed the facts of the compromise and added another request the courts considered that a counteroffer. Whenever there is a counteroffer the initial offer is no longer valid within the court. Majority Reasoning: (Chief Justice Sims)1.Rule: The general rule that the courts go by is if someone makes an offer, then that offer is the initial offer and that is what the courts will go off of. If the receiving party then changes facts or stipulations about the offer then the courts consider that a counteroffer. The initial offer is no longer valid once a counteroffer is made. The person that received the initial offer can’t go back and refer to the original offer whenin court. The counteroffer is now being used instead.2.Application: Even though Glende submitted the acceptance of the offer to the courts, it is no longer valid since they did a counteroffer. What was in the initial offer is no longer available to Glende, since they did a counteroffer.
