#17-180 K.J. v. Los Angeles Unified School Dist., S241057. (B269864; nonpublished opinion; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BC505356.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal from an order in a civil action. This case presents the following issue: Does the Court of Appeal lack jurisdiction over an appeal from an order imposing sanctions on an attorney if the notice of appeal is brought in the name of the client rather than in the name of the attorney?
