Tenth Circuit Urged to Overturn Attorneys’ Fees Award in Another Instance of Albuquerque’s Pattern of Citizen IntimidationJun 23, 2015CLC Staff
Today, in Han-Noggle v. City of Albuquerque, the Campaign Legal Center filed a motion to participate as amicus curiae and an accompanying amicus brief urging the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to partially reverse a district court decision awarding fees to the City of Albuquerque in a civil rights lawsuit. The brief clarifies the legal standards for awarding fees to prevailing civil rights defendants. The brief further emphasizes that the City of Albuquerque has pursued an abusive policy of liberally seeking fees against civil rights plaintiffs in order to discourage such suits, including, most notably, in Baca v. Berry, where the CLC represents individual citizens who the city has attempted to fine for seeking to vindicate their voting rights.
