Attorney’s Fee Award on Summary Judgment Reversed

Among other issues in this case, the Court reversed the trial court’s award of $15,000 in attorney’s fees on summary judgment.  The moving party submitted an affidavit that $53,714 was the reasonable amount of fees for the legal services rendered, but the opponent submitted an affidavit in which their expert stated that a reasonable fee would be no more than $15,000.  Because neither party offered uncontroverted evidence of an amount certain, the trial court improperly made a factual finding in awarding $15,000 in fees.
