Gonzalez v. Santa Clara County Dep't of Social Servs., 041997

After a Mother's successful challenge to an administrative order declaring that she should be reported to the statewide child abuse index for what was deemed excessive discipline of her 12-year old daughter, the trial court's award of only a portion of her requested attorney fees is remanded where, under the peculiar circumstances of this case, the court's complete denial of relief as to three of plaintiff's four attorneys exceeded the bounds of sound discretion.
