RELATED: Court allows sale of Fresno's Tower Theatre
A judge denied their request for an injunction last week, saying they would not likely win at trial because the landlord fulfilled their rental contract by offering to sell the location.
APPEAL FILED— Corin Hoggard (@corinhoggard) March 27, 2021
Sequoia has filed an appeal of Judge Rosemary McGuire’s denial of an injunction to prevent the sale of the Tower Theatre to Adventure Church.

The owners say no one offered to sell them the property until after they filed a lawsuit, which violates their rental contract.
Among the reasons for the appeal, Sequoia Brewing's owners claim the judge abused her discretion and mistakenly decided the landlord didn't have to reveal the offer from the church.
