Barron & Newburger Scores En Banc Ruling From Fifth Circuit

On April 9, 2015, the full Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously reversed prior precedent for awarding attorneys’ fees in bankruptcy in No. 13-50075, Barron & Newburger, P.C. v. Texas Skyline, et al.      The Court reversed the 1998 Pro-Snax decision which required an identifiable, tangible and material result in order to be compensated.   Under the new ruling, fees need only be reasonable at the time for compensation to be awarded.   Barbara Barron and Stephen Sather worked on the appeal.      To read more about the case, click here.
