Micha v. Group Disability Benefits Plan,

In an attorney's fees action, arising from an ERISA case, the district court's denial of appellate attorney's fees under 29 U.S.C. section 1132(g)(1) is reversed. The Court held that when analyzing a party's request for appellate attorney's fees under the rubric of Hummell v. S.E. Rykoff, 634 F.2d 446 (9th Cir. 1980), a court must consider the entire course of litigation instead of focusing exclusively on the prior appeal.
