Court Of Chancery Awards Fees For Contempt

Aveta Inc. v. Bengoa, C.A. 3598-VCL (August 13, 2010)

This is an interesting decision for its explanation of the criteria the Court will consider in reviewing a fee application. The Court held that when the fee award is under the terms of a contract, then the primary criteria is to make the applicant whole for the fees it paid. Of course, the fees must still be reasonable.
