The Wall Street Journal's Law Blog reported Friday that Judge Manuel Real told Bar/Bri antitrust litigators that they could recover around $1.26 million in costs, but not the $12 million in attorneys fees.  Judge Real cited concerns about conflicts of interest and ethical concerns in forfeiting McGuireWoods LLP's fees.
