Client v. So. San Francisco Conf. Center Auth.
The client, was conducting the final day of an educational seminar at the South San Francisco Conference Center (SSFCC). Students from all over the world attend the client's conferences. Prior to the subject incident, the client had held its conferences at the SSFCC for 17 years. During the seminars held on this final day, a noise disturbance caused by another conference held in an adjoining conference room prevented the client from continuing with its seminars.

The client was then forced to discontinue its seminars and dismiss its students.
