Text of Seventh Circuit Opinion Upholding Award of $325,000 in Attorney Fees on $50,000 FMLA Claim (PDF)
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit Link to more items from this source
Sept. 23, 2014
"Defendants' sole argument is that an award of almost $325,000 is not reasonable in relation to Cuff's recovery, which is less than $50,000. The ratio certainly seems high. Rational people do not set out to invest $325,000 in order to obtain $50,000. But then Cuff's lawyers surely did not expect at the outset of this case to invest that much legal time in its pursuit." [Cuff v. Trans State Holdings, Inc., No. 13-1241 (7th Cir. Sept. 19, 2014)]
