All Faruqui'd Up? -- Her $1.4 Million Request Dubbed “Patently Unreasonable.”
A lot of press was generated on the sexual harassment trial involving plaintiff Alexandra Marchuk against Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a securities boutique business. She eventually won a small verdict, and then moved to recover $1.4 million in attorney’s fees and costs. On April 20, 2015, the New York federal court district judge ruled that this request was “patently unreasonable,” awarding plaintiff instead slightly less than $223,000 in fees and costs stemming from the mixed verdict in the harassment case.
