MSPB Awards Full Fees at Laffey Rates

Robert Lee Greene v. Department of Homeland Security, No. AT-0752-10-1029-A-1 (MSPB Atlanta Regional Office Jan. 25, 2012).

I am thrilled to report that we won full fees (except $43.25 in costs) at Laffey Rates before the Merit Systems Protection Board. Thanks to Tracy Gonos for writing an outstanding and successful fee petition.

In this case, Administrative Judge Brian Bolen awarded the Appellant attorney fees of $79,566.46 and costs of $2,037.66, totaling $81,604.12. The only cost which was disallowed was photocopying expenses for $43.25. Elaine Fitch and Kalijarvi, Chuzi, Newman and Fitch, P.C. represented the Appellant.
