Attorney’s Fees and Arbitration

Jay Raubvogel, et. al., v. Credit Suisse Securities, 38 Fla.L. Weekly, Case No. 4D12-259, issued February 20, 2013: The trial court’s finding that the prevailing parties had waived the right to have the court determine attorney’s fees was reversed in the absence of any such express waiver, not merely implied by a request for fees in the arbitration proceedings, and the case remanded for a fee determination by the court.
