HBO Poll: Now For Legal Fees — Sis

Sisyphus: Two major hearings coming up. (McCrory’s) contempt charge and attorney fees. The contempt charge is next week and I expect that this is the cause for them being all verklempt. The parties have 14 days from the date of judgment in which to make a claim for an attorney fees and costs award. I believe any objection to such an award will take an additional 14 days. Then a hearing will be scheduled. So look for that hearing sometime during the holidays.

  • Tuesday Poll results: 98 of 181 (54.14%) said they’re not concerned that Walt Minnick might vote for Nancy Pelosi to be House speaker again, if he’s re-elected. 80 of 181 (44.2%) are concerned. 3 were undecided.
  • Kennedy-Brannon Poll: I’ve pulled the Polldaddy poll because the Polldaddy widget is causing computers using Internet Explorer to crash. At the time I pulled it, 120 of 140 (85.51%) said plaintiff Mike Kennedy should seek legal costs and court fees from plaintiff Jim Brannon. 17 of 140 (12.32%) said he shouldn’t. 3 were undecided.

Question: Should Mike Kennedy be awarded legal fees and court costs for his successful defense in losing opponent Jim Brannon’s lawsuit?
