DisputeSuite.com v. Scoreinc.com, 226652
In an action for breach of contract, fraud, and related causes of action brought in California, involving contracts that contain clauses subjecting disputes arising out of the agreements to the sole jurisdiction of courts in Florida, which was dismissed by the trial court on forum non conveniens grounds, the Court of Appeals' decision affirming the trial court's denial of defendants' motion for attorney's fees is affirmed where defendants' victory in moving the litigation to Florida did not make it the prevailing party as a matter of law under Civil Code section 1717.
