Silas v. Arden (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 28, 2013)

I'm glad that the Court of Appeal published this opinion.  If only to make clear that it's no defense to a malicious prosecution action for an attorney to say:  "Even if I knew or should have known that the cause of action I was asserting lacked merit, it was okay for me to refuse to drop it, because that's what zealous representation of a client requires."

You can say that.  But you can also lose over a quarter million dollars as a result.

Like here.
