“Fee Request Found ‘Grossly Inflated’ Denied in Entirety”

by Walter Olson on October 4, 2012

“Four law firms that submitted a “grossly inflated” $2.7 million fee request after winning $12,500 for their client should go away empty-handed, a federal judge has ruled. Eastern District Judge Joanna Seybert, sitting in Central Islip, condemned the fee application submitted by real estate investor Robert Toussie’s attorneys, including $2.65 million for Chadbourne & Parke, as ‘outrageously excessive’ and done in ‘bad faith.'” [NYLJ]

Seems as if this might put Overlawyered out of business if it were applied to such cases routinely.
