Thanks for the summary. I haven't read the case, so maybe I'm missing something. But...if post-filing "settlement discussions were fruitless", how could it possibly have mattered whether there was a pre-filing effort to settle or not? It would be one thing if post-filing discussions had led to a settlement, in which case logic might support the conclusion that the plaintiff's attorney's efforts were unnecessary - i.e. a pre-filing contact would have obviated need for the suit at all. But if no easy settlement was happening in any event, I just don't see it.
