UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF CONNECTICUT
BARRON CAPITAL ADVISORS LLC,
ORDER REGARDING EVIDENCE OF COSTS
HAIGHT, Senior District Judge:
On December 1, 2011, this Court issued a ruling [Doc. 40] granting Defendants' Motion for
Sanctions [Doc. 39]. That order stated that "[i]f Defendants intend to press the matter, they are
directed to file within thirty days of the date of this Order sworn evidence of the costs associated
with this litigation, including particularized evidence of any attorneys' fees complying with the
requirements of N.Y. State Ass'n for Retarded Children, Inc. v. Carey, 711 F.2d 1136, 1147-48 (2d
Cir. 1983)." On December 23, 2011, Defendants filed an Affidavit [Doc. 41] regarding those costs.
The Affidavit, however, does not comply with the requirements of Carey with respect to a
claim for attorneys' fees. Further explanation of those requirements can be found in Cruz v. Local
Union No. 3 of the Int'l Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, 34 F.3d 1148, 1160 (2d Cir. 1994) and
Handschu v. Special Services Division, 727 F.Supp.2d 239, 249-51 (S.D.N.Y. 2010).
If Defendants wish to recover attorneys' fees in this matter, they are directed to file, on or
before March 6, 2012, affidavits and submissions that comply with the requirements of Carey, Cruz,
It is SO ORDERED.
Dated: New Haven, Connecticut
