Under California law, a money judgment is enforceable for 10 years. Unless the judgment is renewed prior to the 10-year period, it will become unenforceable. Here, a law firm obtained a judgment in favor of its client. Client allowed the judgment to expire and then sued law firm for malpractice. California Court of Appeal reversed judgment in favor of law firm, because there was no evidence showing judgment could have been collected from judgment debtor.

Case was removed from trial court to arbitration. Later, some parties came to court seeking sanctions under CCP 128.7, because plaintiff's claims were frivolous. Held: Since case was removed, and the Court did not retain further jurisdiction over the parties, court cannot hear sanctions motion.

P entered a contract for harvesting timber. P sued D because the harvest level was below the rate of "176.2 million board feet per year for the first ten years." Trial court granted summary judgment for D, because the contract did not guaranty any such level, and in fact during the contract negotiations such a provision had been rejected. Court of appeal affirmed. What was not guarantied by contract cannot be supplied by covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
