Situation Normal . . .
Kempton v. Cooper, Case No. B229912 (2d Dist., Div. 3 Jan. 25, 2012) (unpublished) was a situation where the appellate court affirmed a trial court’s award of fees on appeal of $53,440 and costs on appeal of $1,410. There was a snafu on the costs to be awarded, necessitating another battle, which was won by the cost claimant (albeit for a lower amount). The losing side did not prevail on its argument that the filing of the amended costs memo, in line with trial court directives, violated the initial costs memo filing deadlines.
