Frontier Communicationsis a telecommunications company in the United States and is the fourth largest provider of digital subscriber lines (based on coverage area). In June of 2017, Kelly and Dawn Garner sued Frontier Communications for damages for violations of the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act which prohibits debt collectors and any person from engaging in abusive, deceptive, and unfair practices. Frontier Communcations was represented by Jennifer Lada and Charles Wachter of Holland & Knight.
On June 7, 2018 the case was tried before the Court without a jury and a Final Judgment against Frontier Communications was entered awarding Plaintiff, Kelly Garner, statutory damages in the amount of $1,000.00. All other claims were dismissed, including Frontier's Counterclaim. On June 25, 2018, in accordance with the Final Judgment, Plaintiff filed his Motion for Attorney’s Fees and Costs. In addition to seeking fees for legal services for trial and pretrial legal activities, the Motion sought fees for litigating the amount of fees. Holland & Knight vigorously opposed that portion of the motion seeking fees-for-fees relying on the holdling of State Farm v. Palma. However, Holland & Knight. was unable to produce any legal authority in support of its position that a plaintiff is not entitled to fees-for-fees in an FCCPA case.
