Court of Appeal Affirms Order in Favor of Client

Bell Tower Building

The California Court of Appeal affirmed a post-judgment order by the Superior Court of Orange County in favor of Larson O’Brien client O Properties, Inc. in a San Juan Capistrano real estate dispute. 

The order, issued on June 2, denied a motion for attorneys’ fees against O Properties and in favor of developer SPM-Fairfield (“SPM”), after a hard-fought California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) dispute arising from the City of San Juan Capistrano’s decision to approve a hotel development in its historic downtown.

Larson O’Brien partners Stephen G. Larson and Paul A. Rigali and counsel Dana M. Howard were retained to represent O Properties in opposing SPM’s motion. The Court of Appeal held that the trial court correctly found that SPM was not entitled to attorneys’ fees because it had a “significant financial stake in the litigation.”
