A trial judge committed no abuse of discretion in denying a worker's request for attorney fees after he secured a jury verdict finding his disability--or perceived disability--had been a substantial motivating cause for his termination from his job. An award of attorney's fees is discretionary under Government Code Sec. 12965(b) and it is not beyond reason to conclude that a plaintiff who obtained no monetary or equitable relief was not a "prevailing party" under the Fair Employment and Housing Act.
