Jeff Geiger Counters

Entertainment is what Jeff Geiger aims for while discussing serious topics that affect the legal system. As Geiger puts it, “I’m thinking about issues, ethics and the law. And I expect you may be, as well. Whether it’s litigation or legislation, the legal system affects all of us. I hope you’ll enjoy and respond to my comments on this blog. I encourage you to comment back, whether you agree or see something in a completely different way.”


 
The blog has not been updated with new information in about three years, but the content still on the page is relevant to current trends in the legal market. The last post on the page from September 2013 details a story about an Ohio attorney that tried to claim he was working over 20 hours a day regularly. However, his attorney indicated that he may have been “sloppy” in his timekeeping. Geiger notes that this attorney should be sanctioned, because deceit by a lawyer goes against the Rules of Professional Conduct.
 
Another post of Geiger’s is from 2012 when the Delaware Supreme Court called an attorney’s fees excessive. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog calculated the award the attorney wanted as $35,000 per hour. Excessive? The Supreme Court awarded the attorney 15% of the $304 million they were seeking in a 110 page opinion with one dissenting vote. Geiger is perplexed how one justice could think that $304 million, or $35,000 per hour was a fair fee.
