Patel also ordered Brian Claypool, Cardenas' attorney, to pay $5,929 awarded to defense counsel for missing a pre-trial conference.
Claypool was in a jury trial during the time of the conference and was unable to contact the court in time to have the conference continued, he said last week.

"The D.A. charging these kids validates the fact that my clients were sexually assaulted," said attorney Brian Claypool, who is representing the alleged victims in a civil claim against the Hacienda-La Puente Unified School District.

"We believe that Eric was murdered," said attorney Brian Claypool of Los Angeles, who has been hired by Jones' family.
Claypool said he also believes the shooting may have been racially motivated.
"Eric is black and there may have been some racial overtones in the shooting," Claypool said.
County Attorney Mike Riese said Friday that Claypool has reached conclusions prematurely.
Claypool held a press conference Friday in Medford, Ore., near Jones' grave, and planned another event Saturday at the Jones residence in Brookings.
The attorney said he will file a notice of a claim next week at the Del Norte County Courthouse, informing the county of his law firm's intent to file a civil lawsuit against the Sheriff's Office.
If county officials reject that notice of claim, Claypool said he will then file a suit in U.S. District Court in San Francisco claiming the Sheriff's Office violated Jones' civil rights guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.
"The federal claim is based on unlawful search and seizure," Claypool said.
The claim would also allege state violations such as battery, assault and negligence on the part of the Sheriff's Office, he said.
Within days of the shooting, Jones' family hired Claypool, who traveled to the North Coast and launched a private investigation of the shooting that he said included interviewing several witnesses and conducting a second autopsy.
"We've done some preliminary investigation and have more to do, but I'm convinced that Eric's shooting was a flagrant violation of the sheriff's department's standards," Claypool said.
"None of the information and comments we've collected so far, including the part about the dog attacking the officer, warrants the use of lethal force," he said."It's rogue police behavior."
Claypool said the results of the second autopsy, conducted by a private medical examiner, match those done by the Del Norte County coroner: That Eric Jones was shot twice,in the abdomen and in the shoulder.
The Jones family will seek punitive damages in the civil claim, Claypool said.
"It's not about the money, but sometimes seeking a lot of money is the only way to get their attention and effect a change in the system," he said.
Claypool said he interviewed a Del Norte County woman who said she was listening to a police scanner during the chase.
He would not divulge the woman's name, but said she claimed to have heard an officer use a racially derogatory term over the scanner after the shooting.
Claypool said he has not heard the actual recording of the police radio communications, but is trying get a copy of the tape.
"I'm putting the sheriff on notice that there may be racial overtones on the tape, and he better not touch it," Claypool said.

"The D.A. charging these kids validates the fact that my clients were sexually assaulted," said attorney Brian Claypool, who is representing the alleged victims in a civil claim against the Hacienda-La Puente Unified School District. "They didn't make this up."
Claypool said the school district last week rejected a civil claim he filed on behalf of the alleged victims. He plans to file a lawsuit next week, he said.
But even with criminal charges filed against three suspects in the alleged sexual assault, attorney Claypool said "this is just the beginning of the process."
"It's just the beginning of learning the whole story," he said.
Claypool said that he believed the coach responsible for the players had knowledge of the abuse, if not involvement.
Two of the unidentified victims reported being lured into a room by the coach prior to the assaults, while another reported the coach winked at one of the assailants immediately after an attack, Claypool said.
"I still believe this teacher/coach was involved in encouraging these kids to do it, directing them to do it and encouraging them to do it as part of a ritual," the attorney said.
Claypool made the allegations in the recently rejected civil claim he filed with the district.
Claypool said he was optimistic that more information would emerge regarding the roles played by district officials and administrators as evidence in the criminal cases against the teenage suspects continues in the coming weeks and months.
"Maybe this will give the impetus to the sheriff's (department) and the D.A. to take a closer look," he said.
Claypool said his investigation has revealed that incidents of sexual hazing such as the ones that recently became public may have been going on for years at La Puente High School - an allegation detectives said they are looking into.
At least two of the suspects charged in the case were victimized in a similar manner themselves in previous years, Claypool said.
"That's the tragedy in all of this," he said.

"There are many more victims but most fear retaliation if they report it" said attorney Brian Claypool, who represents the four teens and their parents. Claypool said one of the alleged victims was expelled by the school "after he reported being attacked."
