WESTERN DIVISION AT DAYTON
TALISMANIC PROPERTIES, LLC, et al.,
Case No. 3:16-cv-285
TIPP CITY, OHIO,
Magistrate Judge Michael J. Newman
ORDER AND ENTRY GRANTING DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR ATTORNEY’S
FEES AND COSTS (DOC. 66) IN THE AMOUNT OF $3,977.11
This civil case is before the Court on Defendant’s motion for attorney’s fees and costs. Doc. 66.
Plaintiffs did not file a memorandum in opposition to Defendant’s motion, and the time for doing so has
expired. Accordingly, the Court deems Defendant’s motion as unopposed. The Court has carefully
considered Defendant’s motion and attachments thereto, and it is now ripe for decision by the Court.
On June 9, 2017, the Court granted the City’s motion for a protective order and directed it to file
a motion for reasonable expenses pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 37(a)(5). Doc. 61. As ordered, the City
filed its motion for attorney’s fees seeking $3,977.11 in fees associated with seeking the requested
protective order. Doc. 66. In the motion, counsel for the City represents expending 25.8 hours litigating
the requested discovery disputes at issue in the motion for a protective order and an hourly rate of $150
per hour. Doc. 66-1 at PageID 1895-96.
Absent opposition by Plaintiffs, and finding the hours
expended, costs sought, and counsel’s hourly rate to be reasonable, the undersigned GRANTS the City’s
motion for attorney’s fees and ORDERS that Plaintiffs pay the City $3,977.11 in attorney’s fees and
costs incurred by the City in obtaining a protective order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
