The Pennsylvania Superior Court has upheld $4.1 million in plaintiffs’ attorney fees awarded by a Philadelphia judge in a Kia Motors faulty-brake class action.

Last fall, the Superior Court panel that upheld the verdict in Samuel-Bassett v. Kia Motors America Inc. asked Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Mark I. Bernstein to issue a supplemental 1925(a) opinion to support why he awarded $4.13 million in counsel fees and $267,513 in expenses in January 2006.
