Judicial Respect: “In the highest tradition of pro bono service to the community, they [plaintiffs' counsel] have waived that right [to attorney's fees]. It is so commendable that their interests in the community so override their personal financial interest that they would voluntarily, not under compulsion, and not under the court's suggestion, that they would voluntarily say ‘we waive our right to attorney's fees’. How marvelous that you would do so.” Hon. William McCurine, Jr., United States Magistrate Judge Spencer v. City of San Diego, No. 04CV-2314-BEN(WMC), February 21, 2007.
“I have seen no similar indication of a public service rendered by any group of lawyers in all the years that I have practiced law myself which is for 38 or the 27 years that I have been on the bench.” Hon. Milton Pollack, Senior United States District Court Judge, Bailey v. Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield, et al. MDL Docket No. 902 (S.D.N.Y.)
