Deals With Multiple Issues After Lower Court Awarded Only $19,176 Out Of Requested $231,000 In Fees.
In our March 19, 2015 post, we discussed the unpublished decision of Save Our Uniquely Rural v. County of San Bernardino, Case No. E059521 (4th Dist., Div. 2 Mar. 18, 2015). We now can update: the decision was certified for publication on April 13, 2015. The decision awarded only $19,176 out of a nearly $231,000 fee request under the private attorney general statute based on excessive hourly rates, limited success, excessive time on some tasks, and partners engaging in clerical tasks/performing undue legal research.
