Island Operating Co Inc v. Jewell et al
MEMORANDUM RULING Considering all of the above, this Court does not find the defendants' conduct in this case has been in bad faith, vexatious, wanton, or oppressive. Therefore, Island's request for attorneys' fees is DENIED. As this Court finds Island is not entitled to fees under the EAJA, which both parties cite, it does not make a determination as to whether fees are barred by sovereign immunity. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED Plaintiff Island's request for costs is GRANTED. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED Plaintiff Island's request for attorney's fees is DENIED. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED the parties are to file with the Court a proposed final judgment, agreed as to form by all parties, within 14 days of the date of this ruling., Once judgment has been entered, the parties may proceed on the question of costs as required by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Local Rules of this Court (Seem e.g. LR 54.3 et seq.). Signed by Judge Rebecca F Doherty on 3/6/17. (crt,Guidry, C)
