Gorman v. Tassajara Dev. Corp., No. H031196

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on October 07, 2009 9:45 AM

In plaintiffs' construction defect case against numerous defendants including general contractor, district court's award of attorneys' fees and costs to plaintiffs is reversed and remanded where, given the apparent arbitrariness of the awards, the court is unable to find a combination of numbers adding up to the precise cost awarded and there is no reasonable connection between the lodestar amount and the trial court's award of attorneys' fees.
