Brooks v. Life Care Centers of America Objection

Hogue & Belong’s Objection Scores Class Members Additional $140,000.00.   Brooks v. Life Care Centers of America Objection

Hogue & Belong filed an Objection on behalf of two former employees to a $1.7 million wage and hour class action settlement in the case of Brooks v. Life Care Centers of America.  Hogue & Belong objected to, in part, that Class counsel’s billing practices caused the request for attorneys fees to be excessive.

The Court agreed, and reduced the requested attorney fees by $140,576.50. The Court expressed concern over class counsel’s billing practices, stating that “most of class counsel’s fee entries appear to be reasonable, although the Court notes with concern some counsel’s liberal use of ‘block billing,’ or combining as many as six different tasks into single, multi-hour time entries which are impossible for the Court to parse.”

Hogue & Belong is pleased to have been a part of achieving an additional $140,000 for distribution to the class.
