BEVERLY HILLS — A former server at a Beverly Hills restaurant owned by “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband was awarded nearly $1.5 million today in attorney’s fees.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Linfield said he disagreed with defense attorney Marianne Zakarian’s claims that the $1.49 million in fees sought on behalf of plaintiff Karina Bustillos was excessive.

Maki said that she and attorney Genie Harrison tried the case and that other lawyers helped get the case ready for trial.
