DIGEST OF HB 1091 (Updated March 5, 2012 6:31 pm - DI 84)

Agricultural operations. Provides that if a court finds that the prosecution or defense of a nuisance action brought against an agricultural operation was frivolous, the court shall award court costs and reasonable attorney's fees to the prevailing party. Specifies that reasonable attorney's fees may only include the fees for one attorney, and must be calculated on the basis of the reasonable and customary hourly rates charged in the county in which the action was brought. Provides that the determination that an action was frivolous may not be based on the mere fact that a party did not prevail. Requires a court to order a person who manufactures: (1) methamphetamine; or (2) marijuana; on property owned by another to pay certain liquidated damages as restitution to the property owner.
