The district court erred in enhancing an attorney fee award after settlement of a class action. It should not have enhanced the fee simply because the plaintiff’s attorney spent many hours on the case, particularly as much of that time was spent on discovery. Since the defendant usually cannot retaliate, there is an incentive for class counsel to run up hours on non-productive discovery so as to enhance the fee. Only in exceptional cases may a lodestar be enhanced because the case involved complex or difficult questions–as difficulty is already taken into account in the hours spent. The fact that the defendant had deep pockets did not make the suit an undesirable one for plaintiff’s counsel to undertake. Fees should not have been enhanced for impressive results since the district court never resolved the true value of the mixed coupon and non-coupon consideration given by the defendant to settle the claims.
