IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Judge Philip A. Brimmer
Civil Action No. 12-cv-00008-PAB-KLM
JAMES IRWIN CHARTER SCHOOLS,
This matter is before the Court on defendant’s motion for attorney’s fees [Docket
No. 20]. On March 21, 2012, the assigned Magistrate Judge recommended [Docket
No. 17] that the Court grant defendant’s Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff’s Title VII Complaint
[Docket No. 10]. The Court accepted the Recommendation and dismissed this case on
April 13, 2012 [Docket No. 18]. Judgment entered on April 17, 2012 [Docket No. 19].
Defendant’s motion for attorney’s fees “requests that this Court award reasonable
attorneys’ fees and costs to [defendant] and against plaintiff . . . in an amount to be
determined sometime in the future.” Docket No. 20 at 7. That request violates both
Rule 54.3 of the Local Rules of Practice, see D.C.COLO.LCivR 54.3 (requiring that
motions for attorney’s fees “shall include the following for each person for whom fees
are claimed: 1. a detailed description of the services rendered, the amount of time
spent, the hourly rate, and the total amount claimed; and 2. a summary of relevant
qualifications and experience”), and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 54, see Fed. R.
Civ. P. 54(d)(2)(B)(iii) (requiring that a motion for attorney’s fees “state the amount
sought or provide a fair estimate of it”). Therefore, it is
ORDERED that defendant’s motion for attorney’s fees [Docket No. 20] is
DATED May 2, 2012.
BY THE COURT:
s/Philip A. Brimmer
PHILIP A. BRIMMER
United States District Judge
