California Court Upholds a Reduction of Attorneys’ Fees but Reverses a Reduction of Costs

In a recent, unpublished opinion Myres v. San Francisco Housing Authority, a California Court of Appeal reversed a trial court’s order reducing the amount of costs a plaintiff had claimed as a result of limited success at trial.

Sue An Employee, But Pay For Attorneys' Fees?

Employers defending wage claims in proceedings before the California Labor Commissioner are not permitted to file complaints or cross-claims against their employees, but that's not the case when a complaint is filed in civil court. Employers faced with complaints from employees seeking unpaid wages may have grounds to file cross-complaints based upon employee misconduct, or they may file a direct lawsuit. An employer may be eager to file such complaints to help "settle the score" where the suing employee committed serious wrongs against the company.
