This is old news, but we just heard it and thought we'd pass it along. After remittitur in Murphy v. Kenneth Cole Productions, the plaintiffs moved for $1.5 million in attorney's fees for the law professors and law students' time. San Francisco Superior Court Judge Anne Bouliane reduced the attorney's proposed hourly rates from $525 to $425 and reduced the law students' rate from $125 to $90, and applied a lodestar multiplier of 1.8. She cut 70 hours from one attorney's total, and 12 hours from lead trial counsel's total. The final bill: although it was a lot, we're betting that it was significantly less than Seyfarth Shaw charged the defendant for its work.
