Case Affirmed Denial Of Attorney’s Fees Because Fees Clause Was Really An Indemnity Clause.
On April 2, 2015, we posted on Rideau v. Stewart Title of California, Case No. D065751 (4th Dist., Div. 1 April 1, 2015), which was unpublished at the time. It affirmed the trial judge’s denial of a fee request after determining that the fees clause was really an indemnity clause not allowing reciprocal recovery under Civil Code section 1717. We can now report that the case was certified for publication on April 14, 2015 and reposted to correct a minor typographical error on April 15, 2015.
