    Express v. Forever 21: Ouch! Court Awards Defendants More than $700,000 in Attorneys Fees and Costs for a Successful Defense of Copyright and Trademark Infringement Claims

      My earlier post on this case ended with the question whether the successful defendants would seek attorneys’ fees. The answer is a resounding yes. Judge Wright in the Central District of California awarded defendants collectively more than $700,000 in fees and costs, including fees incurred in preparing their fee applications. His decision offers guidelines for how defendants who prevail in defending copyright and trademark infringement claims may recover their attorneys’ fees from plaintiff.
