Substantial evidence supported the trial court’s finding that defendant’s payment to an insider creditor who had not sought to enforce his debt for longer than the applicable statute of limitations was nevertheless not a fraudulent transfer made with actual intent to defraud plaintiff, a judgment creditor, but was only a preference–paying one creditor rather than another. On appeal, the appellate court had to accept all reasonable inferences from largely undisputed facts which supported the trial court’s finding. However, the trial court erred in awarding the defendant attorney fees under CCP 2033.420(a) for proving facts stated in requests for admission that plaintiff had denied. The requests, served early in the case, basically asked plaintiff to concede she had no case. After denying the requests for admission, plaintiff defeated a summary judgment motion and presented a plausible case at trial. Requests for admission cannot properly be used in this manner as a way to avoid the American Rule on attorney fees.
