Best To Appeal Both Judgment And Later Fee Order.
We have belabored this a lot, but will continue to do so. In Birmingham v. Roland, Case No. H041945 (6th Dist. July 28, 2016) (unpublished), appellant appealed only a December 2, 2014 judgment and not a subsequent February 27, 2015 fee award of $43,119. Appellant challenged the fee order, but the Sixth District said “no dice” because there was no appeal of the separate fee order. Hint to the prudent: appeal both the judgment and a subsequent fee award, even if it means two appeals.
