Retroactive Post-Judgment Interest

Chodos v. Borman, No. B260326 (D2d5 August 18, 2015)

This is an appeal after remand of this case, where the court of appeal modified a judgment in a quantum meruit
case because the trial court for permitted the jury to include a lodestar multiplier when calculating an attorney’s fees owed by  his former client. The question on this second appeal is: From when and for how much does post-judgment interest run? The court holds that because the prior appeal only reduced the amount of the judgment, but did not reverse it on the merits, post-judgment interest should run from the date of the original judgment, but in the modified amount.

Reversed.
