Coastline JX Holdings LLC v. Letwak & Bennett (May 16, 2022, G059646) 2022 WL 1534602 [nonpublished opinion]

In a 2013 lawsuit, GMSR’s bank client recovered a default judgment for damages and nearly $400,000 in attorney fees.  Seven years later, the defendant moved to set aside the judgment.  The trial court granted the motion on the basis that there were procedural defects in the default judgment, and reduced the fee award to $2,500.  The Court of Appeal reversed.  Adopting GMSR’s arguments, it found that there were no procedural defects in the default judgment, and it reinstated the judgment and the full attorney fee award.
