ORDER RE: SANCTIONS
Michael E. Hegarty, United States Magistrate Judge.
Pursuant to this Court’s order granting in part Defendants’ Motion to Compel [docket #79],
counsel for Defendant and Third-party Plaintiffs WCA Logistics, LLC and WCA Logistics II, LLC,
(collectively, “WCA”) has timely filed an affidavit setting forth a summary of her and her two
associates’ experience and a description of the services rendered, the amount of time spent, the
hourly rate, and the total amount of attorney’s fees claimed for WCA’s preparation of the motion
[docket #86]. Although provided the opportunity to do so, Third-Party Defendant John Breen did
not file any objections to the affidavit. The Court finds that Ms. Rodgers’ hourly rate ($200.00), Mr.
Godec’s hourly rate ($250.00), and Mr. Riley’s hourly rate ($200.00) are reasonable and that the
total time necessary (10.6 hours) to research and prepare the 7-page motion and 6-page reply brief
containing approximately 37 pages of attachments is appropriate.
WHEREFORE, the Court ORDERS that Third-Party Defendant Breen be sanctioned in the
amount of $2,160.00, to be paid to counsel for WCA as a reasonable sanction of attorney’s fees.
This amount shall be paid no later than September 12, 2014. Counsel for Plaintiff shall file a Notice
of Compliance with Order re: Sanctions on or before September 19, 2014.
Dated at Denver, Colorado this 19th day of August, 2014.
BY THE COURT:
Michael E. Hegarty
United States Magistrate Judge
