Williams v. Chino Valley Independent Fire District: Supreme Court To Review Decision That Prevailing FEHA Defendant May Recover Ordinary Costs Without Showing That Action Was Frivolous, Unreasonable, or Groundless

In Williams v. Chino Valley Independent Fire District (7/23/13) --- Cal.App.4th --- (discussed here), the Court of Appeal held that a defendant in a FEHA action need not show that the claim was frivolous, unreasonable, or groundless in order to recover its "ordinary costs" under California Code of Civil Procedure section 1032.

The California Supreme Court granted review on 10/16/13. Williams is Case No. S213100, and the Court's web page for it is here.
