ResetAA Font size: Print

Huerta v. Kava Holdings, Inc., 277164

Held that a fired restaurant server who brought an unsuccessful employment lawsuit was not required to reimburse his employer $50,000 in costs and expert witness fees, even though he had rejected the employer's pretrial Code of Civil Procedure section 998 settlement offer. Reversed the lower court's order, and in doing so discussed recent legislative changes affecting awards of costs and attorney and expert witness fees under the Fair Employment and Housing Act.
