The issue that most often drags appeals back into more litigation is attorney fee and costs. What happens when, while focusing on the appeal, the prevailing party gets a substantial award of fees and costs?
- Do you have to separately appeal from the fees and costs award? (Yes…usually.)
- How can you stay enforcement of the fees and costs award? (Fee & cost awards are stayed automatically…sometimes.)
- If you win the underlying appeal, what happens to the fees and costs award? (It goes away automatically…in theory.)
We discuss these questions and more in this nuts-and-bolts episode of the California Appellate Law Podcast.
