The lawyers for the class action, especially the class representatives, will be the opinion of the Ninth Circuit in re Optical Disk Drive Products Antitrust Litig., Nos. 17-15065 et al. (9. Cir. May 15, 2020) (published). There, the Ninth Circuit was remanded in custody due to a re-examination of certain fee/fee premiums paid to the class counsellor in megafund situations. The class counselor had moved in two cases for 25% of the fund (with the prior offer sealed by the lawyer for the case 12-13% of the fund) and for 21% of the fund (the sealed offer amounted to 12% of the fund). In presenting any grants by the District Court (which has largely accepted applications for class assistance), the Court of Appeal found that (1) the size of the fund in megafund settlements is a relevant consideration, for which there is no clear “reference” or sliding approach, although the 25% benchmark for minor cases provides little support in megafund cases; (2) the discrepancy between a competitive offer, the structure of the class advisor`s pre-accountability fees and the fees charged is a relevant concern, as the offer becomes the starting point for setting a reasonable fee – this amount must be adjusted upwards or downwards according to circumstances that were not taken into account at the time of the offer, provided the District Court provides an appropriate explanation of the possible derogations. Lawyers at Beach Whitman Cowdrey, LLP v. Robertson, Case No. B259718 (2d Dist., Div. May 6, 2016) (unpublished) probably bummed, when the first instance granted a summary judgment in favour of the ex-client and also awarded the former client US$61.208 on the basis of a clause of legal fees in a retention agreement ensuring the payment of legal benefits under a certificate of trust against the client`s real estate.

Construction Law v. Children, Case No. D074911 (4. Dist., Div. May 12, 2020) (unpublished), legal action to recover more than $68,000 in ex-client fees for the representation they would have in a cabin repair case of $75,000 in damages, a case that gave the reasons for the prosecution that the ex-client could have s sued for reimbursement of expenses, if successful, was withdrawn by a summary decision, the law firm. The former Cross-client filed a complaint for breach of the duty of trust and negligence in the handling of the lawsuit, by which the law firm attempted to collect the $68,000 in costs. The jury awarded the law firm only $7,580 in damages out of the $68,000 required. The law firm then applied for legal fees as the dominant party under a contractual royalty clause in the storage contract. The judge rejected the application entirely, finding that the cabin repair action should not have been brought in advance (but certainly not as an unlimited case) and that the costs charged for the work were not appropriate.
In re EasySaver Rewards Litig., No. 16-56307 (9th Cir.
