The title caught me by surprise, but I was amazed at the ruling in Cafasso v. General Dynamics C4 Systems, Inc., Case Nos. 09-16181/09-16607 (9th Cir. Mar. 24, 2011).
According to the post, the Ninth Circuit affirmed a $300,000 fee award against a qui tam plaintiff who lost a contract claim and had a history of litigation abuse throughout the case. Wow.. Yes, you read it correctly, the Plaintiff was charged for bringing the litigation against the defendant, General Dynamics C4 Systems, Inc.
I encourage you to read the entire blog post and the complaint, it is startling that this would happen.
