Westgate Resorts, Ltd. v. Adel, 2016 UT 2, (Jan. 5, 2016)

The Supreme Court confirmed an arbitration panel’s award of reasonable attorney’s fees to the prevailing party under the Utah Pattern of Unlawful Activity Act, even though the fee award was greater than the amount the party contracted to pay its attorneys. The Court held that the arbitration panel did not commit an obvious error in its calculation of reasonable fees because the UPUAA does not expressly limit a plaintiff’s reasonable attorney fees to those actually incurred.
