CASE ENTRY

Young v. Smith

Pro-tip from the Third Circuit for attorneys requesting fees: Don’t have a single-spaced, 6- to 8-point font, 44-page fee petition including “hundreds of inappropriate, unethical entries that would likely be illegal if billed to a client.” You might find yourself facing no fees, a sanction, and a referral to the attorney disciplinary board.
