Simke, Chodos, Silberfeld and Anteau, Inc. v. Athans, B222175

In a dispute arising from an action for breach of a contingency fee agreement, judgment of the trial court awarding attorney fees after entry of a default judgment for discovery violations is affirmed because a complaint does not have to specify, by dollar amount, the attorney fees that will be incurred and sought in a case ultimately resolved by a default judgment entered as a discovery sanction.
