A federal judge has awarded $1.50 in fees to attorneys for an Arkansas prison inmate who won a civil rights lawsuit against the state prison system after she was shackled while giving birth. The attorneys had asked for about $140,000 in fees -- but the judge said they are limited by state law to 150 percent of damages, which amounted to $1.00.
