The trial court properly determined, as a matter of law, that defendant attorneys lacked probable cause to file and to continue prosecuting an action by a mobilehome park resident against the park owner for interference with the resident’s contract to sell her mobilehome to a third party. The Mobilehome Residency Law at the time allowed park owners to require would-be new mobilehome owner/residents of the park to provide evidence showing that they had financial means to afford to pay rent and other charges. That is all that the park owner asked of the prospective buyer. The jury did not err in awarding plaintiffs the $171,000 in attorney fees they had incurred in the maliciously prosecuted case. Even if the fees were paid by LA Investment’s owner rather than LA Investments itself, that party still incurred the liability for those fees and could recover them as damages.
