    hi sir i like your site .The offer was open for less than a week before it expired according to its terms. The trial court bifurcated the trial to adjudicate the issue of liability based on alter ego prior to determining damages. After the landlord rested on the alter ego liability phase of trial, the corporation moved for judgment. The landlord filed a voluntary dismissal of the action with prejudice before the issuance of any ruling on the pending motion. The trial court concluded that the corporation was not entitled to attorney fees under either California Civil Code § 1717 (which addresses attorney's fees in contract actions), or California Code of Civil Procedure § 998 (which addresses attorney’s fees resulting from certain conditions related to an offer to compromise/settle a case)thanks .......
