Today I read a really interesting
The order was only 41 pages long -- sheesh who wrote it, Stephen King?
I'm not faulting the Judge for his thorough analysis, particularly where as here he was asked to award over $250k in fees against a group of lawyers from Carlton Fields, I'm just saying his orders can be exhausting.
In addition to the obligatory music reference (it's back!), the order is chock full of highlights -- the DC law firm seeking the award of fees had billed over $325k addressing these two discovery motions(!); forget DC rates, the Judge thinks you can even do a little better on fees than what Carlton Fields charges here in Miami; my favorite may be that it turned out an "unduly burdensome" objection over producing a database wasn't really all that burdensome:
Even more startling, the affidavit revealed that one Procaps database could be exported with less than one hour of time expended by a Procaps’ employee ‐‐ a far cry from Procaps’ counsel’s unduly burdensome objection.So sit back, pop a nice bottle of wine, take a few hours and drink this one in.
