License Agreement Entitles Owner to Evict
Facts: An owner licensed 24,000 square feet of retail space in its shopping center to a licensee to sell its merchandise. The owner later revoked the license, under which the licensee was required to leave the space in case of a revocation. However, the licensee refused to leave, and the owner filed an eviction proceeding under state law. The licensee claimed that it had the same rights that it would’ve been entitled to under a lease, including the right to stay in the space until the matter was settled.
