Commercial Lease Agreement
Where tenant appealed a trial court judgment granting unlawful detainer to the owner after the court found that the tenant breached the parties’ commercial lease agreement, the lease assigned exclusive control over the common area of the shopping center to the owner, and all the evidence of breach related to the conduct of third-party invitees that occurred in the common area, so the trial court erred by finding that tenant materially breached and forfeited the lease.
Judgment is reversed.

Judgment is affirmed.
