Attorney's Fees

2001

BUCKHANNON BOARD & CARE HOME, INC. v. WEST VIRGINIA DEPT. OF HEALTH AND HUMAN RESOURCES (99-1848) 203 F.3d 819

Question before the Court:
  1. Whether federal statutes that allow courts to award attorney's fees and costs to the "prevailing party" authorize awards of fees to parties whose lawsuits brought about voluntary changes in the defendants' conduct but did not result in judgments on the merits or court ordered consent decrees.
