Date: March 2009

The court held a bench trial on the issue of attorneys' fees related to the plaintiff's suit for Non-Payment of Promissory Note and Breach of Guaranty Agreement against HPTY's client.  HPTY argued that the plaintiff's fees were inflated due to over-staffing and inefficient use of attorney time.  After a bench trial, the judge reduced the plaintiff's requested fees by 20% and reduced the plaintiff's requested expenses by 97%.
