SC Mfr'd. Homes, Inc. v. Canyon View Estates, Inc., B182088
Denial of attorney fees and costs, after plaintiff dealer of mobilehomes dismissed most defendants in case involving suit against defendant dealers and others alleging a kickback scheme, is affirmed as defendants are not entitled to attorney fees and costs under Civil Code section 789.85 because this case did not arise out of the Mobilehome Residency Law and did not involve the application of MRL provisions in specific factual contexts addressed by the MRL.
