Vogel v. Harbor Plaza Center LLC, 16-55229

Vacating and remanding an attorney's fee award under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA awards the prevailing party attorney's fees using a lodestar approach, but the district court declined to use that approach and instead used a local rule as to the award. The 9th Circuit held that the lodestar approach should have been applied even if the case ended in a default judgment.
