Extraordinary feeJune 10, 2017

A.B. Med. Servs., PLLC v Motor Veh. Acc. Indem. Corp., 2017 NY Slip Op 50676(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2017)

(1) “Assuming without deciding that 11 NYCRR 65-4.6 (f), a no-fault regulation, could properly be applied to postjudgment enforcement litigation, such as that involved herein, we nonetheless agree with the Civil Court’s finding that the issues in dispute here were not so novel or unique as to require extraordinary skills or services warranting attorney’s fees in excess of those provided for in the no-fault regulations, regardless of the outcome obtained

(2) “Indeed, plaintiffs’ counsel’s own timesheets indicate that the attorneys involved spent less than two and a half hours on legal research on these allegedly “novel” issues.”
