Determination of attorney fees in the 2nd Circuit
M.K. v. Sergi: Remarkably, this Connecticut district court case addresses matters that date back in part to 1995! It is of significance beyond the parties mainly for its restatement of the 2nd Circuit’s abandonment of the lodestar approach and the reiteration of the notion that attorney fees are to be determined at current market rates, not historical rates.
