IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
FEDERAL NATIONAL MORTGAGE
ROBERT T. MADEJ, et al.,
This matter is before the Court on the Plaintiff's Motion for Attorney
Fees (filing 14). The Court's Memorandum and Order of June 18, 2013 (filing
11) previously found that an award of costs and expenses, including attorney
fees, was appropriate in this case because the removing parties lacked an
objectively reasonable basis for seeking removal. See 28 U.S.C. § 1447(c); see
also Martin v. Franklin Capital Corp., 546 U.S. 132, 141 (2005).
The defendants have filed no objection or response to the plaintiff's
motion for attorney fees. The Court has reviewed the motion and the
plaintiff's affidavit and finds the plaintiff's fees to be reasonable. See Farmers
Coop. v. Senske & Son Transfer Co., 572 F.3d 492, 500 (8th Cir. 2009); see
also, Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(d)(2); NECivR 54.3. Accordingly, the plaintiff's motion
will be granted.
