GCSA INC VS. MARMOL

Case No.: 30-2014-00748095-CU-NP-CJC    

1.MOTION FOR ATTORNEY FEES
Defendants (1) Ali Parvaneh and Madison Harbor law corp., and (2) Luis Marmol and Barzin Barry Sabahat argue that as prevailing parties in their anti-SLAPP motions on appeal and before this Trial Court, they are entitled to recover reasonable costs and attorneys fees totaling $99,542.43. (CCP 425.16 (c)(1).)
In determining reasonable hours, counsel’s verified time statements, as officers of the court, are entitled to credence in the absence of a clear indication the records are erroneous. (Horsford v. Board of Trustees (2005) 132 Cal.App.4th 359, 396.)
Once counsel’s hours are documented, the burden shifts to the opposing party to show that any specific time is unreasonable. In challenging attorney’s fees as excessive, the burden is on the challenging party to point to the specific items challenged, with a sufficient argument and citations to the evidence.
