Banana King Defaults on Claim for Beets and Cilantro As Attorneys Fees Get Indirect OK

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 24 – US French Corporation sued Banana King Distributor LLC under the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) for not paying for green plantains, betabel beets, scallions, cilantro and Eastern potatoes.        

    On April 22, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Katherine Polk Failla held a default hearing. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Failla asked about the attorneys fees.

She said she was not signing off on $450 an hour, but did approve the amount requested, given the work put in. The plaintiff's lawyer wanted the filing fee, but not the cost of serving the papers.

The case is US French Corp. v. Banana King Distributor LLC, et al., 21-cv-10256 (Failla)
