Editor’s note: In July 2012, the federal government moved to seize commercially leased property located in San Jose, CA, because it was being used by a medical-€“marijuana-producing tenant operating in compliance with California law. The federal government did not recognize as valid California’s authorization of medical marijuana sales, as it still has on the books its own legislation listing marijuana as a schedule-I drug — the most dangerous kind. The Government brought a civil in-rem forfeiture action pursuant to 21 U.S.C. § 881(a)(7), which authorizes the Government, in the case of property that is being used to violate the federal Controlled Substances Act, to seize such “real property, including any right, title, and interest (including any leasehold interest) in the whole of any lot or tract of land and any appurtenances or improvements, which is used, or intended to be used, in any manner or part, to commit, or to facilitate the commission of, a violation of this subchapter punishable by more than one year’s imprisonment.”

Despite the apparent risks, relocation provisions are frequently not a potential tenant’s priority concern when negotiating the business points of a lease. This is a serious oversight. Signing a lease with an overly broad relocation provision can lead to many issues if the landlord elects to exercise its right to relocate the tenant.

“Baseball arbitration” refers to the process used in Major League Baseball in which if an eligible player’s representative and the club ownership cannot reach a compensation agreement through negotiation, each party enters a final submission and during a formal hearing each side — player and management — presents its case and then the designated panel of arbitrators chooses one of the salary bids with no other result being allowed. This method has become increasingly popular even beyond the sport of baseball.
