Evans's motion for fees and costs, NQ 158, is granted as modified. Evans
seeks attorney's fees for the full statutory amount of $29,250.00 and costs in the
amount of $966.71. The State doesn't oppose the costs, or Evans's method for
calculating fees. It does, however, contend that the fees should be calculated
based on the reduced damages amount. NQ 168. The Court agrees, and uses
the reduced amount of damages- $15,500.00- to calculate the fees. Having
reviewed the time expended and considering the results obtained, the Court
awards Evans $23,250.00 in attorney's fees and $966.71 in costs. 42 U.S.C.
