I will be interviewing the defendant in this case, who won with his pro bono attorney against the big bad attorneys for the city of Inglewood. He sent me a link to the judge’s final ruling—the ruling prior to finding the city owed $117,000 in attorney’s fees to the pro bono attorney. If you get a chance, read the opinion. It is interesting.

It is so interesting how differently things turn out when they are heard in Federal court than when they are heard in a local superior court, especially suits involving public entities. Here is the link: City of Inglewood
