Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's award of $53,305.00 in attorney's fees rather than plaintiffs' attorney's request for $140,290.00 in an action under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, is affirmed as the district court's conclusion was not clearly erroneous in finding that, although the attorney negotiated a final settlement, it was inappropriate that a substantial portion of the hours billed were to compensate him for learning the area of the law, as he became involved so late in the case.
