In Sommerfield v City of Chicago No 13-1265 the 7th US Circuit upheld an award of Attorney’s fees of $430,000.  The initial case started from a discrimination claim filed by a Jewish Police Officer against the City of Chicago Policy Department.  Over the years the plaintiff had loss on most counts to Chicago on summary judgement, but was finally awarded by a jury in federal court the sum of $30,000.

In this decades old case, the attorney in the case initially claimed fees of $1,496,930, but this was reduced by the US District court to $430,000. 

One needs to consider the total cost of a federal discrimination suit when deciding how to proceed.
