UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SANDRA ESPINOZA CHAPA,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-04788-SK
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR
ATTORNEY FEES WITHOUT
Regarding Docket No. 38
Plaintiff’s counsel, Geri Kahn, filed a motion for an award of attorneys’ fees. In her
motion, Counsel fails to address whether she provided notice to Plaintiff of the motion for
attorneys’ fees and/or whether Plaintiff objects. Additionally, Counsel failed to address what her
effective hourly rate would be if awarded the amount requested and failed to show that the
effective hourly rate would be reasonable in light of the character of the representation, results
achieved, and in comparison to other fee awards from this District. Accordingly, the Court
DENIES the motion for attorneys’ fees, but does so without prejudice to Counsel filing an
amended motion which cures these defects.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 7, 2021
United States Magistrate Judge
