The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit held recently that a plaintiff who prevails in a lawsuit under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) cannot recover the fees paid for a court-ordered mediation. See Nicholas v. Allianceone Receivables Management, Inc., No. 11-13764 (11th Cir. Jan. 10, 2012). The court reasoned that the plaintiff was not entitled to mediation fees because those costs are not taxable under 28 U.S.C. § 1920.
