Klotz v. Milbank,Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, B255827

In a suit alleging claims for breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy, and legal malpractice, the trial court's order overruling law firm defendants' demurrer and denying their motion to strike the First Amended Complaint under Civil Code section 1714.10 is: 1) reversed where any advice defendants gave plaintiff arose from an attempt to contest or compromise a claim or dispute, and thus was within the ambit of section 1714.10; and 2) affirm as to the trial court's order on plaintiffs' other claims for breach of fiduciary duty and legal malpractice.
