Rosen v. LegacyQuest (Cal. Ct. App. - April 8, 2014)

When your refusal to pay a judgment is so crystal clearly wrong, you better be really, really right on the law.

Which the defendant isn't here.

I'd be looking -- actively looking -- for ways to make the surety here pay.  It's been eight years since the plaintiffs here got their judgment.  I have no problem whatsoever with tacking on some attorney's fees in light of the surety's intransigence.

Which is exactly what the Court of Appeal does.  In a decision that's both consistent with the law as well as entirely equitable.
