Worsham v. Day

by
In this case in which Debbie Worsham was awarded damages on her breach of contract action the Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the circuit court denying Worsham's motion for attorney's fees and costs and Worsham's motion for reconsideration, holding that Worsham's motion for attorney's fees was untimely. On appeal, Worsham argued that she was entitled to attorney's fees pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. 16-22-308 and that the circuit court erred in denying her motion for attorney's fees because it was timely under Ark. R. Civ. P. 54(e). The Supreme Court affirmed the circuit court's denial of Worsham's motion for attorney's fees, holding (1) the circuit court correctly found that the attorney's fees motion was untimely; and (2) Worsham's argument that she was entitled to attorney's fees under section 16-22-308 was without merit.
