Opinion analysis: Title VII defendants can recover attorney’s fees without prevailing “on the merits” : SCOTUSblog

defendant seeking attorney’s fees in a Title VII case must show that (1) it is a prevailing party and (2) the plaintiff’s claim was frivolous, unreasonable, or groundless.

On Thursday the Court unanimously held that a defendant seeking attorney’s fees can be a “prevailing party” even without obtaining a favorable judgment “on the merits.”

Thanks. God bless.
