Bennett v. PatrickAnnotate this Case
After prevailing at trial, Plaintiffs Mathew Bennett and Benjamin Walton sought fees under I.C. 12-120(4), which provides for fees in personal injury actions with claims under $25,000. The district court declined to award fees, holding that the plaintiffs waived any entitlement to fees because their complaint sought more than $25,000 each and because they asked for an even greater amount at trial. Upon review, the Supreme Court reversed the district court's holding and remanded for a determination of fees.
