CFC Awards Full Fees for AF Breach

October 24, 2013

In SUFI Network Servs., Inc. v. U.S. (Oct. 16, 2013), the CFC awarded SUFI, represented by Crowell & Moring, as breach damages its attorneys' fees and expenses for preparing claim packages that were later successfully litigated. Brushing aside the government's multiple challenges, the court found Crowell & Moring's fees and expenses to be reasonable and awarded them in full, plus interest as provided by agreement, but denied SUFI's request for an overhead and profit burden, finding that the client did not add "any material value" to the claim preparation efforts.
