Here's an interesting opinion from Magistrate Judge Torres awarding defendants attorney's fees for opposing a copyright infringement claim.
The Court weighed the discretionary factors and decided fees were appropriate, but issued this cautionary warning:
Moreover, though it is a safe bet that the parties’ counsel would have known to consult it in the course of preparation of their fee petition, for the sake of time and convenience we refer the parties to our decision in Hermosilla v. Coca-Cola Co., 2011 WL 9364952 (S.D. Fla. July 15, 2011), which will have a bearing especially on the hourly rates that the Court will approve in this case. In short, do not ask for “New York” billing rates. And for any hourly rates included in the application, biographical materials for each timekeeper should be included.To be safe, don't even ask for "Hoboken, New Jersey" billing rates.
Stay away from the boroughs.
Get out of Philly, avoid Baltimore, head south of DC, make a brief stop at "South of the Border," now you're getting warmer.......
