Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
Did you sign a settlement agreement?
The settlement was agreed to by their attorney and ours and sent however the plaintiff backed out and refused to sign it.
Unless there is a contractual agreement to pay attorney's fees, or a specific statutory provisions, then it is very unlikely that the court will award attorney's fees to either party.
That said, there's nothing that prevents you from seeking attorney's fees from this member.
You can file a request just as the other party and ask the court for the same relief.
