Thank you Customer for your clarification and response to my questions.
Unfortunately the answer is not good. She has no recourse against him for making the commitment to move to California. In California actions for "breach of promise" do not exist as the law is clear that unmarried couples are free to decide whether they want to follow their partner and engage in a married life understanding that there is no rights under common law marriage
and there are no rights to force someone to commit to a relationship they no longer wish to pursue.
In California only those who have entered into partnership or written agreements would be able to enforce their claims under the breach of contract theory.
As to the contract with Cedar Sinai, she has no claims against him for this as this is something she voluntarily decided to do on her own. The contract with Cedar Sinai is legally binding and enforcible. If your daughter does not want to pay the travel expenses, she is stuck in California until August.
As to his purchases, if she made any contributions towards the motorcycle, piano, keyboard and sports car, then she would be entitled to seek reimbursement for her contributions to these items. If these where things he purchased on his own, she has no recourse.
As to the dogs. She can seek restitution for the money and time spent on taking care of his dogs. She would be able to sue in order to recover the expense she has incurred in having to care and feed these dogs. She can also charge the common rate for "dog watchers" in the area.
As to her vehicle. If she kept the proceeds from selling her car, then she has no lawsuit against him. If he took her proceeds, then she can sue him for reimbursement of that amount. There would be no cause of action merely because he recommended that she sell the car, as it was up to her to sell it or not.
I believe I have covered all your issues, if not please let me know. Thanks.
