Welcome to The Briefing – a legal podcast by Smith Freed Eberhard. We will provide insight and analysis on new Oregon and Washington case law, litigation innovation and technology, the insurance marketplace, and firm news.
In this week’s episode, Abby Ferguson, Marketing Manager, discusses Smith Freed Eberhard’s latest Legal Alert, “Washington Court of Appeals Paves the Road to Costly Attorneys’ Fees in Cases Affecting Title to Real Property”. The Washington Court of Appeals held that if a claim brought for a statutory claim against real property (otherwise known as lis pendens) does not affect the rights incident to title to real property, the court may then award attorney fees pursuant to the defending party. This includes fees the prevailing party incurred in canceling the lis pendens.
