Trial court order order dismissing defendant's claim for loss of goodwill connected to the acquisition by eminent domain of real property is reversed where the court erred in concluding that defendant was not entitled to compensation for goodwill because it was a month-to-month tenant as nothing requires that a business owner's entitlement to goodwill must be based on a written lease on the property that is taken.
APPEAL from an order of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, Joanne O'Donnell, Judge. Reversed.
