"Double Dipping" Was The Rationale.
Earl & Reimer APC v. Klimek, Case No. H041638 (6th Dist. Feb. 1, 2017) (unpublished) is a case where an attorney's fees award was reversed and remanded in order to prevent "double dipping": the trial judge previously awarded discovery sanctions, and those sanctions were not properly taken into account with respect to the fee recovery calculations. Reversed and remanded for a "re-do."
