Sir-Mix-A-Lot Awarded Attorney's Fees For Defeating Copyright Claim

Ford v. Ray, No. 15-0432 (W.D. Wash. Oct. 27, 2015).

After dismissing plaintiff's copyright claim and granting Sir-Mix-A-Lot attorneys fees under 17 USC 505, the Court awarded defendant $20,000 in fees.  The amount awarded was a reduction from the approximately $58,000 sought, based on partially redacted and duplicative time-sheets and avoiding putting the plaintiff in financial ruin.
