Notes of Decisions

Interpleader ac­tion is not "suit to foreclose" attorney's lien for purposes of allowing attorney fees under this sec­tion. Rockwood Water Dist. v. Steve Smith Contracting, 80 Or App 136, 720 P2d 1332 (1986), Sup Ct review denied

Notes of Decisions

Under Former Similar Statute

Where an insolvent party had assigned his award for attorney fees to his attorney, this sec­tion did not prevent the other party's right to setoff in a related pro­ceed­ing. Hartford Acc. & Indem. Co. v. Pyle, 271 Or 97, 530 P2d 843 (1975)
