Mountjoy v. Bank of America, 077283

In an action seeking a lodestar sum of $308,425 in attorney fee for 760.70 hours billed in a wrongful foreclosure case, the trial court's order reducing hours claimed by 70 percent is reversed where the trial court abused its discretion in basing the award on a 70 percent across-the-board reduction, as this reduction was arbitrary and may have swept too broadly, denying the attorneys compensation for time claimed in billing entries that were not flawed.
