Does anyone know what you can legally tack on in California for bills that are overdue? I've got a really weird situation where the court ordered a litigant to pay for the court reporter as a sanction, and he's taking his sweet time. So it's not my client who's delinquent, even though they set the depo. I've never added a service fee, but it's getting ridiculous. Can I add a service fee of, say, 1.5% per month, from this point forward? Or am I fried because it wasn't included on the original invoice?
Thanks for any help.
