Firms Settle Fee Dispute After Sex-Bias Class Action Resolves
As of the time the fourth amended complaint was filed, Hamburg said it had not cashed the check Sanford sent it because Hamburg didn't believe it to be a proportional contingency fee. Hamburg said it believed the amount it was paid by Sanford was a "small fraction" of the amount Hamburg is actually owed on a contingency basis, according to the complaint.
Hamburg had sued Sanford for breach of contract, unjust enrichment and fraud.
Neil Hamburg of the Hamburg firm declined to comment. Sanford's attorney, Edward S. Mazurek of The Mazurek Law Firm, also declined to comment.
