Second DCA Reverses Fee Award

In Routh v. Thompson and Cox, the Second District this week found error in a contempt order issued by the lower court.  That lower tribunal had ordered that the contemnor was required to pay $1,000.00 a month in attorneys’ fees on a temporary basis, and was found to have included insufficient findings to support his ability to pay that award.  In addition, as there was no finding made as to the reasonableness of the hourly rate and number of hours expended and awarded, the fee award was deficient, and reversed.
