RBG partner Sanford Jay Rosen was quoted extensively in an article in The Recorder on August 22, 2011, “Attorney spouses eligible for fee awards in civil rights cases, 9th Circuit rules.”  A brief excerpt from the article appears below.

“Sanford Rosen of Rosen, Bien & Galvan, who has litigated numerous attorney fee disputes, said the decision represents a small number of civil rights cases in which an attorney could claim fees, but speaks to a larger trend.

‘It appears that decisions are being made on the side of allowing the plaintiff to be awarded fees for an attorney with whom the plaintiff has some relationship,’ he said.”
