  Laird Hetlage obtained a Judgment for damages of $135,800 and a mechanics lien against a developer and owner of a condominium project in W. James Taylor v. Adler Lofts, et. Al.  In this equitable mechanics lien action several claimants sought liens.  The defendants argued that the liens were not entitled to priority over the first deed of trust of the primary lender.   The Court concluded that the purpose of the loan was in part to finance the construction.
