Estate of Angela Enoch v. Tienor, No. 08-4103

By FindLaw Staff on June 29, 2009 2:43 PM

In a dispute involving attorney's fees, district court order is reversed where, in cases which involve more than a nominal award, a fee award should not be reduced because the damages are smaller than a plaintiff originally sought. On remand the court should consider the lodestar figure, the number of hours reasonably expended on the litigation multiplied by a reasonable hourly rate, as well as other factors set out in Hensley.
