YUBA CYPRESS HOUSING PARTNERS, LTD. v. AREA DEVELOPERS, C036661

An award of attorneys' fees under a clause in a disaffirmed real estate contract was proper, because to deny such fees would permit defendant to benefit from the illegality it created; plaintiff's motion for attorneys' fees incurred on appeal was timely under Rule of Court 870.2(b)(1).
