Choi v. Orange County Great Park Corp., No. G040823

By FindLaw Staff on July 01, 2009 4:45 PM

Trial court judgment is reversed and remanded where the court erred in failing to award plaintiffs attorney fees under Code of Civil Procedure sec. 1021.5 as plaintiffs were the prevailing parties, their action resulted in the enforcement of an important right affecting the public interest and conferred a significant benefit on the general public or a large class of persons, filing the action was necessary for plaintiffs to obtain access to the documents, and the fees will not be paid out of an award to plaintiff.
