The “Poof” Principle

I don’t know if they coined the phrase — kudos to whoever did — but “the ‘poof principle” is the phrase the guys at California Attorney Fees use to sum up one aspect of Sanai v. Saltz, case nos. B198217 & B202787 (2d Dist. Jan. 26, 2009).  What better phrase to apply to a case where the defendant sees a million dollar attorney fee award evaporate because the underlying judgment is reversed?


  1. “Poof Principle”, I guess it speaks for itself !! Although humorous, it must have been really hard on the defendants to see that money slip away right before their eyes!
