Case Summary

P1262 A broadly worded attorney fee provision in a contract applies to tort actions arising from the contractual relationship as well as to contract actions; an award of attorney fees is not improper simply because it exceeds the damages award; the fact that attorneys represented plaintiffs who were not entitled to fees does not require allocation of work done for plaintiffs who are entitled to fees if the rights of all plaintiffs are so factually interrelated that it would be impossible to separate the attorneys' activities; when an award of attorney fees is authorized, state law permits a court to fix reasonable fees, even if they exceed guidelines set by a local court rule; authorized attorney fees should not be reduced simply because the attorneys agreed to work pro bono for low-income clients.
