Children and Families Commission of Fresno County v. Brown, F066233

In an action alleging that the Legislature exceeded its authority in enacting AB 99, asserting the measure interfered with local control of commission funds, violated Prop 10's prohibition on using those funds to supplant existing services, and threatened to allow expenditures for services to all age groups, rather than children to age five and their families as required, the postjudgment order denying plaintiffs' motion for attorney fees sought under the private attorney general doctrine is affirmed, where the private attorney general doctrine does not apply because, as the trial court correctly determined, the financial burden of this litigation was not out of proportion to the plaintiffs' pecuniary stakes in the proceedings.
