Marina Pacifica Homeowners Association v. Southern California Financial Corporation

Both plaintiff and defendant appeal from a postjudgment
order concluding neither of them was the prevailing party in

them was entitled to attorney fees under Civil Code section 1717
(section 1717) or to costs under Code of Civil Procedure
section 1032 (section 1032). We affirm the trial court’s order.
