White v. Cridlebaugh, No. F053843
In an action for breach of contract, negligence, fraud, and violations of California's licensure requirements, trial court judgment is modified and affirmed where: 1) the court properly granted plaintiffs' motion for a directed verdict on their Business and Professions Code sec. 7031 claim for reimbursement of the compensation paid for the unlicensed work as the corporation that acted as the building contractor on the project violated California's licensure requirements; and 2) the reference in Business and Professions Code sec. 7031 to the recovery of all compensation paid an unlicensed contractor means the unlicensed contractor cannot reduce the recovery authorized by asserting claims of offset, indemnity, or contribution arising out of the unlicensed work.
