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. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
