“Submissions were filed…to defend against the claim for expenses against him personally and to bring a motion for summary judgment…Alon Rooz wrote …a 16-page written response and motion. This motion for summary judgment was granted…if I find that the conduct of Federation [insurance company] in seeking expenses…was unreasonable…I can award…all or part of his costs…its conduct was not reasonable. I therefore find that Federation should have to pay…”
“He submits that his claim is reasonable on the basis that the hearing was scheduled for 4 days…Mr. Rooz asserted privilege…the overarching consideration in the awarding of expenses is reasonableness…I find …Mr. Rooz’s time would have been reasonable…on the basis of the foregoing, I award…$6,628.75”
