PAYMENT OF ATTORNEY FEES IN EMINENT DOMAIN AND ENVIRONMENTAL LITIGATION
The purposes of this paper are to explore the background of the present trend toward payment of attorneys' fees in eminent domain proceedings and to determine those situations in which attorneys' fees should be paid and should not be paid, the manner of determination of the fees, and the factors considered by the courts in determining the amount thereof. In addition, the paper discusses those situations in which attorneys' fees may still be awarded in environmental actions in spite of the decision of Alyeska v. Wilderness Society, 421 U.S. 240, 44 L.Ed.2d 141, 95 S.Ct. 1612 (1975).
