SLG Awarded $493,721.72 In Attorneys' Fees in Federal Court Victory

On March 27, 2017, the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia awarded Sullivan Law Group, P.L.C. an award of $493,721.72 in attorneys’ fees for the jury verdict received in their favor after a two week jury trial in federal court, in which SLG represented the Plaintiff.  In the Court’s Order awarding attorneys’ fees, the Court noted the following:

“Plaintiff vigorously litigated and prevailed on significant legal issues throughout the litigation that addressed novel and difficult questions requiring significant skill.”

“This case required a significant expenditure of time and labor involving complex legal issues in a niche area of employment discrimination law.”

“Plaintiff’s victory served a public purpose in defining the responsibilities of joint employers to offer reasonable accommodation, which may be more than TTY, to medical professionals in similar health care facilities.”
