THEE AGUILA, INC. v. CALIFORNIA EMINENT DOMAIN LAW GROUP, et al.

(BC532354)

DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FOR ATTORNEY FEES ON APPEAL

Moving parties: Defendants Edgar Fragoso, Eva Meneses, dba El Parral

TENTATIVE RULING

Defendants Fragoso and Meneses’ unopposed motion for attorney fees and costs on appeal is GRANTED as prayed in the amount of $60,219.65, payable to defendants Edgar Fragoso and Eva Meneses and their counsel Century Law Group (CLG) and against Plaintiff Thee Aguila Inc.

Discussion

Following the remittitur in this matter on 9/3/19, on 9/18/19 moving parties filed a memorandum of costs on appeal. On 10/10/19 moving parties filed the instant motion for attorney fees.

Defendants Fragoso and Meneses request $60,219.65 in attorney fees and costs as the prevailing parties on appeal. This amount breaks down as follows:

· $42,300 in attorney fees

· $10,575 (a 1.25 multiplier)

· $ 3,600.00 for the fee motion

· $ 3,744.65 in costs

$60,219.65

Fee entitlement

The court refers to a previous fee award regarding the moving parties’ entitlement to attorney fees.

Lodestar analysis

Hourly rate. The court is cognizant of its previous fee award in this case based on an hourly rate of of $450 per hour. That hourly rate is what moving parties request; it remains within the reasonable range here for the appellate work and is more than reasonable.

Hours. Counsel has adequately supported the 94 hours expended for the appeal and 8 hours for the fee motion.

Lodestar. The lodestar is based on 102 hours @ $450 per hour for a total of $45,900.

Multiplier. The court agrees with moving parties that a multiplier is appropriate given the complexities of the appeal and the complete success the El Parral defendants achieved resulting in a published opinion. The court finds that a multiplier of 1.25 is appropriately applied on the 94 hours.

Costs : Awarded as prayed in the amount of $3,744.65.

Moving parties to e-file a proposed order and give notice of ruling.
