Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
The default rule in the U.S. Courts is that each party bears the cost of their own attorney's fees. There is an exception when there's a statute or contract that authorizes attorneys' fees. A free speech lawsuit brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act is eligible for an attorneys' fee award.
