Simmons v. N.Y. City Transit Authority, No. 08-4079

By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 4:19 PM

In a dispute involving attorney's fees, district court judgment is vacated and remanded where the court erred in awarding attorney's fees to plaintiff's based on the prevailing hourly rates in the district where her counsel was based, rather than where the suit was litigated, as plaintiff did not satisfy the exception to the forum rule for attorney's fees.
