Back to TopPrintE-mail
Friday  December 14, 2012 

This CLE program covers nearly all aspects of attorney's fee litigation under various statutes such as 42 U.S.C. § 1988, the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA), and Indiana's Adult Wrongful Death statute (AWDS) pursuant to McCabe v. Commissioner Dept. of Ins. 949 N.E.2d 816 (Ind. 2011). This program will cover such topics as establishing prevailing party status and fee liability, requirements of keeping time, methods of calculating fees and hourly rates, and recovering litigation expenses. We will also address many defenses and pitfalls in prosecuting fee claims, such as out-of-town rates, utilization of multiple attorneys, and availability of fees where little to no damages are recovered.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
