A hearing on an application for the award of attorney's fees.

Practice point:  The plaintiff waived his right to a hearing on the defendant's application by agreeing that, although "each party retains the right to appeal any order of this court with respect to counsel fees," the parties' respective applications for an award of an attorney's fee would be "done simultaneously without a right to oppose or reply."

Case:  Fishman v. Solomon, NY Slip Op 05581 (2d Dep't July 12, 2017)

Here is the decision.

Tomorrow's issue:  A claim for injuries caused by a domestic animal.
