UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF IDAHO
JACOBS SILVER K FARMS, INC., et al.,
Case No. 4:13-CV-535-BLW
TAYLOR PRODUCE, LLC, et al.,
The Court has before it a motion for attorney fees and costs filed by plaintiffs
against defendants Taylor Produce and Alan Taylor. No opposition to the motion was
filed. Plaintiffs filed this lawsuit because they were not paid by Taylor Produce for
potatoes that plaintiffs shipped to Taylor Produce. Plaintiffs eventually prevailed, and
this Court entered a Judgment against Taylor Produce for the full amount sought by
plaintiffs, about $1.3 million.
Plaintiffs now seek $213,172.00 in attorney fees and $3,476.35 in costs. While
Taylor filed no opposition to the motion, the Court’s independent review finds the request
reasonable and necessary. This matter was litigated for almost three years before
plaintiffs prevailed. Numerous depositions were taken and lengthy briefs filed. The time
spent, and the hourly rates, all appear reasonable. For these reasons, the Court will grant
the motion and enter a separate Judgment as required by Rule 58(a).
