Mary C. Keener, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Department of the Army & Hon. Michael W.p. Stone, Secretaryof the Army, Defendant-appellees, 956 F.2d 269 (6th Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 956 F.2d 269 (6th Cir. 1992) Feb. 24, 1992

Before BOGGS and ALAN E. NORRIS, Circuit Judges, and LIVELY, Senior Circuit Judge.


This appeal arises out of an action filed by attorney David H. Parton to collect attorney fees for services he claimed were rendered in representing Mary C. Keener, and were due from the Department of the Army. The district court denied the request for fees and the imposed sanctions.

Having had the benefit of oral argument, and having carefully considered the record on appeal and briefs of the parties, we are not persuaded that the district court erred in entering the order appealed from.

As the reasons why the order should have been entered have been articulated by the district court, the issuance of a written opinion by this court would be duplicative and serve no useful purpose. Accordingly, the order of the district court is affirmed upon the reasoning set out by that court in its memorandum opinion of February 8, 1991.
