In Fraser v. BATFaE the plaintiffs (good guys) said that 18, 19, and 20 year-olds are part of The People and that the government was infringing.
On May 10, 2023, the court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs. The court then ordered the winning party, the good guys, to submit their costs for payment by the losing side, the government.
This case as only made it to the district court level. The lawyers involved are at the good but not great level.
The lawyers are reporting: $900+ in expenses, 230+ hours of billable time at $495/hour for a total billable of $107,368.50
The final order in the case was entered on Aug. 24, 2023. In general, the losing side has 30 days to appeal. The state has requested a stay pending appeal, which has been granted. It does not look like the state has appealed this case.
It would be good for us if they did appeal. While it would hurt 18, 19, and 20 year-olds, having a Circuit Court find in our favor has more impact than just a district court.
