Attorneys’ Fees and Trusts

Pizarro v Reynoso (2017) 10 CA5th 172. Court’s equitable power to charge attorney

fees and litigation expenses against trust shares of bad faith litigants does not give the

court equitable power to make those litigants personally liable for such fees and

expenses. Imposition of personal liability requires statutory authorization.
