Profit Concepts Mgmt., Inc. v. Griffith, G039077

In a suit brought by a California-based company against a former employee-Oklahoma resident for breach of contract, wherein the employment contract at issue provided that in any litigation involving the contract, the prevailing party would be entitled to recover attorney's fees and costs, judgment for former employee awarding costs including attorney's fees is affirmed where: 1) because the trial court granted the employee's motion to quash service for lack of personal jurisdiction, the employee was the party prevailing on the contract under Civil Code section 1717; and 2) thus, he was entitled to recover reasonable attorney's fees as costs.
