IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
BOARD OF EDUCATION OF
WASHINGTON COUNTY JOINT
VOCATIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT,
Case No. C2-08-CV-0663
JUDGE ALGENON L. MARBLEY
Magistrate Judge King
This matter is before the Court on the Defendant’s Motion to Bifurcate Attorney Fees
From Liability Issues (Doc. 81). Plaintiff does not oppose the request because the Federal and
Local Rules of Civil Procedure provide that attorneys’ fees should be litigated by motion after
judgment has been entered. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(d)(2); S.D. Ohio Civ. R. 54.2. The Court
shares the Plaintiff’s view and GRANTS the motion. The trial shall proceed on the Plaintiff’s
liability and damages claims and shall not include the Plaintiff’s claim for attorneys’ fees.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
