Moore v. Teed (2020) 48 Cal.App.5th 280

GMSR won a published decision for our tech-executive client, following his win at trial against a deceitful real estate agent.  The agent’s appeal conceded liability for misleading our client into a major purchase-renovation deal on false pretenses—but he attacked all the remedies.  He said the measure of damages for his fiduciary fraud—on which California decisions have long conflicted—should have been less than the trial court allowed.  He argued that the verdict form contained overlapping awards for certain damage items.  And he sought reversal of our client’s attorney fee award.  We persuaded the First District Court of Appeal to reject all those arguments and to award our client his appeal fees.
