John W. Wilcox, Jr., Thomas M. Kuna, Atlanta, Ga., for defendant-appellee.
Before THORNBERRY, AINSWORTH and RONEY, Circuit Judges.
United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
RONEY, Circuit Judge:
The question on this appeal concerns the adequacy of attorneys' fees awarded by the District Court in a Title VII class action. Plaintiffs challenge as inadequate the $13,500.00 awarded for their alleged 659.5 billable hours accrued during more than four years of litigation. We are called upon to review the award and set appropriate standards to better enable District Courts to arrive at just compensation.
