Order staying attorneys' fee petition


A federal judge holds that the judicial efficiencies to be realized by not ruling on a pending attorneys' fee petition until after the appeal is complete overrides the requirements of the the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Act, 42 U.S.C. § 4654(c) (2006), which explicitly requires an award of attorneys’ fees and costs to be made at the time of judgment. The judge also acknolwedged that the Plaintiffs who had filed the attorneys' fee petition argued that they would be harmed by a delay.
