S057520 Strawn v. Farmers Ins. Co.

Court:

Supreme Court
Filed Date:02/22/2013

Decision: The petitions for attorney fees for proceedings following the decision of the Court of Appeals are allowed in part and denied in part as follows. Strawn is awarded $72,724.75 in attorney fees and expenses not part of attorney fees ($70,299.90 and $2,424.85 respectively), that amount to be paid by Farmers under ORS 742.061(1). Strawn also is awarded another $297,850.74 in attorney fees and expenses not part of attorney fees ($291,012.10 and $6,838.64 respectively on all three fee petitions), that amount to be paid from the punitive damages award in this case. Strawn is awarded a $5,000 class incentive fee to be paid from the punitive damages award in this case. The request for class administration fees is denied without prejudice to Strawn seeking an award of those fees by appropriate application to the trial court. Farmers's motion to stay issuance of the appellate judgment is dismissed as moot.
