American Commissioner in his decision (Decision No. 10) rendeni3
November 16, 1928, in a similar proceeding, brought by certajn @
shareholders in the same schooner, for fixing the fees to be pM:
them to the same attorneys who represent this claimant.
This claimant was not mentioned in that decision because of
uncertainty at that time as to whether or not he desired to w"iA
his request to have the attorneys' fee fixed in his case, whidch:i
tainty has since been removed.
The reasons and considerations set forth in the decision 'a
mentioned, which are hereby incorporated, by reference, in this'!
sion, apply equally in this case and result in the same concla4
Now, therefore, considering that the payment of any fee tpo
attorneys was contingent upon securing and collecting an award
that the fee to be paid includes all disbursements and expenses,
considering the character and extent and value of the services
dered by these attorneys, and in view of the considerations statE
the general Jurisdictional and Administrative Decision rendered
the American Commissioner under date of September 28, 192N:
after careful examination and full consideration of the inforiH
furnished in these proceedings by the attorneys and the claimazin
by the records of this Commission pertinent to the questions inivo
and after due deliberation thereon.
The American Commissioner decides and fixes as the reason4V0
to be paid by this claimant, Calvin W. Rogers, Executor of the
of Gardiner G. Deering, deceased, to his attorneys, Blodgett,jlj
Burnham & Bingham, an amount equal to twenty per cent ,:ii4
amount received by the claimant from the Treasury Departn
payment of the award rendered on his behalf, said fee to be ,
the claimant and received by the attorneys as full compensate
all services rendered in the prosecution and collection of thiaj
as defined by Section 9 of the "Settlement of War Claims,,;H
1928."
