Civil Procedure

Heimlich v. Shivji (2019) _ Cal.5th _ , 2019 WL 2292828: The California Supreme Court reversed the Court of Appeal directing it to affirm the trial court’s order confirming the arbitration award but denying costs to respondent. A request for costs under section 998 is timely if filed with the arbitrator within 15 days of a final award. An arbitrator has authority to award costs to the requesting party, but if the arbitrator refuses to award costs, judicial review is limited. (May 30, 2019.)
