$200 AN HOUR LEGAL FEE FOUND REASONABLE BY COURT OF APPEALS

 

“we do not believe the Horns have set forth a prima facie case of estoppel. First, the alleged false representation made by the developer in no way prevented the Horns from bringing an action seeking enforcement of the subdivision covenant.

“the Horns maintain that a $200 per hour fee was unreasonable and that certain attorney’s fees and costs should be disallowed.”

As to the amount charged per hour, we think $200 is both reasonable and well within the circuit court’s discretion for which we find no abuse.  See: Horn v. Messamore  2010-CA-000504
