Bode & Grenier, LLP v. Carroll Knight

<> Bode & Grenier, LLP v. Carroll Knight - 10/23/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 14-7104. A law firm based in the District of Columbia, Bode & Grenier, LLP, provided legal services to three Michigan-based companies owned and managed by Carroll Knight ("appellants") who offer petroleum fueling products and services. More than ten years into the relationship, appellants stopped paying the bill. The predictable result? Litigation. The law firm prevailed in the district court, winning a judgment for $70,000 in overdue legal fees—plus $269,585.19 in legal fees for having to litigate over $70,000 in legal fees. We affirm the district court.
