Any reasonable person in this situation would settle, confidentially, for a fraction of what it would cost to go to trial.
It takes both parties to agree to settle. Things get more and more costly, but if one side won't settle, the other can't make him.
Is the question about attorney fees or settlement?
In this case, since no other parties or entities are a party to this lawsuit, you would have to presume that each litigant would pay their own attorney fees as well as payments made to the other parties as part of a monetary settlement.
Who else do you think would make these payments?
I would like to restate the questions to make them less ambiguous:
Does Woodell have to pay Kiraly's attorney's fees?
Does Kiraly have to pay Woodell's attorney's fees?
Do Woodell and Kiraly each pay their own attorney's fees?
Does anyone have the answer?
There is no point worrying about this. As posted earlier, a reasonable person would simply settle, and it would all be confidential.
Everyone pays their own attorneys. This is why it is always advantageous to settle.
There were actually three cases. Bernstein tried to sue Woodell and the court rejected his claims. Kiraly sued Woodell and he settled. The third case is ongoing.
