A security business is asking the Supreme Court to hold that a law enacted about 30 years ago allows reimbursement of paralegal expenses at market rates and not at a law firm's cost. Richlin Security Service's high court counsel will argue Wednesday that the Federal Circuit was wrong when it held, contrary to court interpretations of other fee-shifting statutes, that paralegal services are not embraced by the statute's phrase "attorney fees," but fall under "other expenses," reimbursable at actual cost.
