Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a dispute involving attorney's fees, district court's fee award is affirmed where: 1) the court did not err in reducing the requested fee as the collaboration among four attorneys led to duplicative work and excessive billing; 2) the court did not abuse its discretion in failing to specifically enunciate how it calculated the ultimate fee as substantial fees were not at stake and the reasons for the court's fee award are apparent from the record; and 3) the court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion to compel the defendant to produce its counsel's billing records.
