One-way fee shifts



A bill in the California legislature would create new entitlements for the state attorney general's office -- and even in some cases private attorneys partnering with the AG -- to reap one-way fee shifts from losing opponents. Under a one-way arrangement, of course, there is no corresponding and symmetric obligation to pay fees when the opponents prevail. Civil Justice Association of California sounds the alarm.
