Lucky United Properties Inv., Inc. v. Lee, A124965

Trial court's grant of defendants' motion to compel plaintiff's attorney to acknowledge the satisfaction of a prior order for attorney's fees and costs and denying in part the attorney's motion for other attorney's fees and costs incurred in connection with his successful motion to strike, arising from an underlying suit involving a contract dispute over purchase of real property, is reversed where: 1) trial court erred in denying the attorney's request for attorney fees as the judgment was not fully satisfied by the time the attorney brought his motion for attorney fees incurred in connection with the abstract of judgment and lien notices; 2) the trial court erred in denying the attorney's memorandum of costs; and 3) the trial court erred in granting defendant's motion for satisfaction of judgment under section 724.050.
