Diaz v. Jiten Hotel Management, Inc., 13-1444

In an employment discrimination action, following remand by the appellate court on the issue of calculating attorney fees, the district court's recalculation of attorney's fees is affirmed, where: 1) while the court likely had no obligation even to consider plaintiff's request to correct the judgment on remand from this court, nothing barred it from doing so; and 2) an award of $104,626.34 in attorney's fees and costs, for a suit obtaining a damages award of $7,650, is so not disproportionate as to constitute an abuse of discretion.
