Scholarly Lectures/Writings:

  • Co-authored with Bernard J. DiMuro, this publication covers the law of both attorney fees and sanctions in Federal and Virginia courts. Since this book was first published in 2012, the Virginia Supreme Court has specifically issued at least five important decisions regarding when sanctions are appropriate and have clarified other important areas of when attorney fees are recoverable. In federal court, over the last several years, trial courts have been cracking down on the documentation requirements for granting attorney fees, which are referenced throughout the book, while at the same time the determinations of what constitutes a reasonable fee have fluctuated throughout the various divisions and even with the same districts. The most recent decisions from each District are included. This book also explains the 2015 amendments to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37(e) regarding spoliation of electronically stored evidence.  , Co-author, Attorneys Fees and Sanctions, Virginia CLE, 2016
