Rickley v. Goodfriend, B234152

In plaintiffs' action for nuisance against their neighbors, the trial court's denial of attorney's fees to the plaintiff, an attorney, for enforcing judgment contempt proceedings against the defendants, citing a lack of California authority to support an award of fees to a pro se attorney, is reversed and remanded for a determination of whether the non-attorney plaintiff consulted the attorney-plaintiff in her professional capacity and whether their relationship in terms of this lawsuit, was for the purposes of obtaining legal advice.
