There’s good news and bad news for Miami attorney Arvin Peltz in his fight to collect more than $94,000 in legal fees and to avoid a nearly $53,000 fee judgment against him.

The good news: The Third District Court of Appeal Wednesday reversed the attorney fee award against Peltz. The bad: The appellate court left intact a ruling that found the defendants weren’t responsible for the five-figure debt the attorney sought to recoup. It did, however, leave the door open for Peltz to collect from another former client, in a decision that clarified derivative and direct claims.
