California attorney Felipa Richland lost a major case where Superior Court issued an award against her and her client, Kourosh Hakimpoor aka Kenny Hakimpoor who was forced to resign his California Corporation Nathan Enterprises Corporation (NEC) . Felipa Richland California attorney was upset she lost yet another lawsuit so appealed. The Court of Appeal found Felipa Richland’s appeals was meritless where it said in part, in Court of Appeal, Second District, Case Number B216582,
“Thus, NEC is not entitled to the tolling provision of section 351 because NEC has not established the necessary factual predicate for application of the statute.” The Court of Appeal also took issue with yet another flawed argument of Felipa Richland Beverly Hills attorney where she did failed to file the lawsuit within the statute of limitation. The court said,
“Because NEC failed to file the underlying action until February 13, 2008, its malicious prosecution claim based on the filing of [second case] was time-barred, and the trial court properly found NEC had no probability of prevailing on that claim.” That’s right, the court said Felipa Richland had “no probability of prevailing” but she still filed the lawsuit in a vexatiously.
The Court of Appeal went on to say discard yet another argument by Felipa Richland,
“Accordingly, NEC has no probability of prevailing on its abuse of process claim. Thus, the second cause of action for abuse of process must be stricken under the anti-SLAPP statute because that claim arises from protected activity and lacks even minimal merit. We now turn to the remaining causes of action.”
And last, the Court of Appeal discarded yet another argument of Felipa Richland when it said, “NEC lacks standing to bring the claims for intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.”
It is possible California attorney Felipa Richland consulted with her associate San Diego attorney Scott McMillan who was called a vexatious litigant in other cases. Lytwyn v. Fry’s Electronic devices, Inc. (2005) 126 Cal.App.4 th 1455, 1464; McMillan v. Weathersby (9th Cir. 2002) 31 F.App’x 371, 374. Scott McMillan , McMillan Law Firm, La Mesa, California, was also hauled into federal court on fraud allegations he was forced to settle see press-release.
