Attorney’s fee spin cycle

Judge Posner caustically dispatches a fee request following the failure of a putative class action over alleged defects in Sears’ Kenmore clothes dryers [AmLaw]

For those too lazy too read the entire article, it concludes with the statement that the lawyers spent just shy of a quarter million dollars and that:

‘He said he would petition to the appeals court for a rehearing.’

Thereby, no doubt, increasing the legal bill. For a suit in which he hopes to recover $17,000 and which the judge estimates as worth no more than $3000.

I can think of no sarcastic remark worthy of this.

It seems that being completely nuts is not something for which one can be disbarred. That’s useful to know, both for protection and to open new, post-retirement job opportunities.

Posner? Caustic?

Never. Not even possible.
