O'CONNOR AGENCY, INC. v. BRODKIN, G026504

Where defending an appeal would have been required even absent alleged legal malpractice, no "actual injury" is suffered until the court of appeals reversed the lower court judgment, for purposes of the statute of limitations; recovery of lost punitive damages is available in a legal malpractice action.
