Description
 
In the U.S., parties involved in federal litigation generally pay their own attorney fees. There are many exceptions to this general rule where statutes authorize the award of attorney fees to a successful, or prevailing, party. Some of these provisions also apply to the federal government when it loses a case. In 1980, Congress passed the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA) to allow parties that prevail in cases against federal agencies to seek reimbursement from the federal government for attorney fees, where doing so was not previously authorized. This report determines the extent to which data are available on attorney fee payments made under EAJA and other fee-shifting statutes at USDA and the Dept. of the Interior for FY 2000 through 2010. It addresses the extent to which USDA and Interior had information available on attorney fee claims and payments made under EAJA and other fee-shifting statutes for FY 2000 through 2010, including who made claims for payment, which claims were paid, the amount paid for each approved claim, and the statutes under which the cases were brought. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
