Seeing that I couldn't find a specific thread for this (that wasn't over a year old - or more)....

A decision from the 7th Circuit on fees for Gura and the NRA: http://www.ca7.uscourts.gov/tmp/8E0PHS5R.pdf

By the time defendants bowed to the inevitable, plaintiffs had in hand a judgment of the Supreme Court that gave them everything they needed. If a favorable decision of the Supreme Court does not count as “the necessary judicial imprimatur” on the plaintiffs’ position (Buckhannon, 532 U.S. at 605), what would?

The district court’s decision is reversed, and the cases are remanded for awards of reasonable attorneys’ fees under §1988.

Judge Easterbrook wrote this. Gotta love the smack-down, even from an anti-2A judge!!
