Alfaro v. Colgate-Palmolive Co., 281022

Reversed a ruling that denied costs to Colgate-Palmolive Co. after it prevailed in a suit alleging that its talcum powder products caused the plaintiff to develop mesothelioma. Colgate argued that the trial court should have granted its request for over $300,000 in costs. The Second Appellate District agreed that the trial court abused its discretion in denying all costs on grounds of inability to pay and also that the trial court erred in failing to determine whether Colgate made its offer to compromise under section 998 in good faith.
