Civil Practice: Attorneys’ Fees-Minnesota Law

Staff Report//January 28, 2019

Where the state challenged an award of attorneys’ fees and costs in a challenge to a consent order brought by an auto glass-replacement company, the company prevailed on the most important issue in the litigation, and the district court’s 15 percent reduction to account for work on non-prevailing claims was within its discretion, so the judgment is affirmed because a 5 percent reduction for overbilling was also not an abuse of discretion.

Judgment is affirmed.

Safelite Group, Inc. v. Rothman (MLW No. 72617/Case No. 17-2974 – 5 pages) (U.S. Court of Appeals, 8th Circuit, per curiam) Appealed from U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota. (Unpublished)
