Phoenix Arbor Plaza, Ltd. v. Dauderman

In Phoenix Arbor Plaza, Ltd. v. Dauderman, 163 Ariz. 27, 30, 785 P.2d 1215, 1218 (App. 1989), the Court held that Arizona law governed the liability of a wife, a California resident, on a guaranty signed by her husband to secure performance of a lease of Arizona property. The Court affirmed summary judgment in favor of the wife and the marital community, noting that "it makes no sense to allow a spouse to jeopardize the other spouse's property rights by going to another state and making a unilateral guarantee affecting that property." Id. at 31, n.1, 785 P.2d at 1219, n. 1.
