Governor signs appellate-respondents-fee bill

Get out your checkbooks, respondents and real parties in interest. Governor Brown yesterday approved the bill, which we’ve mentioned, that imposes a $325 fee for “a party other than” the appellant or petitioner in appeals and writs in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. The fee is to be paid for a party’s “filing its first document” in those proceedings. The bill provides that it takes effect immediately.
