Bill M. v. Nebraska Dep't of Health and Human Serv., No. 08-2586

By FindLaw Staff on July 02, 2009 2:10 PM

In a dispute involving attorney's fees, district court judgment is affirmed where the district court properly denied the plaintiffs' request for attorneys' fees under the applicable federal fee-shifting statutes, as the parties' settlement agreement did not require the court's approval, incorporation in a court order, or retention of jurisdiction for future oversight and enforcement and thus lacked the necessary judicial imprimatur to confer upon the plaintiffs prevailing party status.
