An arbitration panel has ordered John M. O’Quinn’s firm to pay a little more to a class of 3,450 former breast implant clients who allege O’Quinn’s firm overcharged them for expenses.

In July, a three-member arbitration panel ordered O’Quinn’s firm to pay $35.7 million in damages to the class. But in an order issued on Sept. 11, a three-member arbitration panel ordered the firm to pay a total of $41,465,950. That $41.5 million breaks down to $9,979,364 for breach of contract damages, $2,494,841 for attorney fees on the breach of contract claim, $3,991,745 in interest on the breach of contract claim and $25 million for fee forfeiture.
