Cadle Co. v. Pratt (In re Pratt)

The matter was remanded to the court from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. The district court had affirmed the denial of a motion for sanctions filed by plaintiff company against defendant debtor, but reversed the court's decision to award attorney's fees and costs to the debtor's attorney. The matter was remanded so the court could determine whether an attorney fee award to the debtor's counsel was warranted.
Ruling: 
Debtor's counsel awarded fees in costs for successful defense of motion for sanctions.
