Google settled part of a class action, paying some class members $65 million and agreeing to separately pay plaintiffs’ attorneys fees as awarded by the court. Plaintiffs’ attorneys appealed from the district court’s fee award, claiming the district court should have awarded them more based on the common fund theory of fee awards rather than the lower sum it calculated on a lodestar plus multiplier basis. This decision holds that the order awarding fees is not appealable. It is not a final judgment and is not appealable under the collateral order doctrine, though traditional common fund fee awards (payable from settlement proceeds rather than separately by the defendant) might be. Since defendant would be paying this award, it was reviewable after final judgment would be entered and thus could not be reviewed under the collateral order doctrine.
