Case Is One Involving Fee Recovery By Public Agency.
Okay, so a public agency did prevail and recover fees in a dispute in Wilshire Ventures Corp. v. City of San Fernando Redevelopment Agency, Case Nos. B230916/B232924 (2d Dist., Div. 1 May 9, 2012) (unpublished). Public agency was entitled to fees under a written contractual fees clause. However, fee recovery had to be remanded because public agency overreached--it did not show why it should recover for “general education” in a prior case involving separate entities (with no showing that it had a public interest or wider impact in the case before the court) and supervising general counsel for public agency did not really show why this added fee expense should be foisted on the loser (after, all general counsel was not “of record” and billed for expenses in the separate case already discussed).
