Wolf v. Ford Kennelly, No. 08-2203

By FindLaw Staff on July 23, 2009 3:35 PM

District court order barring plaintiff's petition for attorney's fees for defendant's attempted removal is reversed where removal was foreclosed by clearly established law at the time defendant filed his notice in federal court, and thus defendant lacked an objectively reasonable basis for seeking removal and the court can award attorney's fees under 28 U.S.C. sec. 1447(c).
