Chinese Yellow Pages Co. v. Chinese Overseas Mktg. Svc. Corp., B197234

Denial of request for postjudgment fees and costs incurred in a bankruptcy proceeding brought by defendant and judgment debtor is reversed where: 1) Code of Civil Procedure section 685.040 can extend to reasonable and necessary attorney's fees and costs incurred in postjudgment bankruptcy proceedings under the circumstances of the present case; and 2) because the trial court ruled it had no jurisdiction to award reasonable and necessary attorney's fees and costs, the case is reversed.
