Lucky United Property Investments v. Lee (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 5, 2013)

Here's an opinion that addresses how you calculate interest on various post-judgment cost and fee awards.  It's rendered in 2013.

The underlying lawsuit involved a property dispute, which then devolved into multiple competing malicious prosecution actions, anti-SLAPP motions, cost and fee awards, and various enforcement proceedings.  The original fee award was for around $25,000.  How long could the resulting disputes really take?

Let me answer that question this way:  The original lawsuit was filed in the twentieth century.

Suffice it to say that the parties don't like each other.  And are affirmatively interested in battling over pittances.
