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.
