Another Reminder that FEHA Defendants Can be Awarded Attorney’s Fees

Here’s another reminder that a plaintiff in a FEHA case may be ordered to pay defendant’s attorney’s fees if the court finds that “…plaintiff’s action was frivolous, unreasonable or without foundation, even though not brought in subjective bad faith.”

There’s still a myth out there that plaintiffs are never liable for defendants’ attorney’s fees, but that’s all it is—a myth.

So sue carefully.
