Plaintiff U.S. Bank, N.A. moves for attorney’s fees against defendant Recovery Services

contract which allows for the prevailing party in a dispute arising out of that contract to recover
reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. U.S. Bank also requests that I find Custom’s counsel,

vexatious litigation conduct. According to the State Bar of Nevada’s website, Wait is deceased.
