If the prevailing party were entitled to attorney fees and to expert witness costs, the cap would be a moot issue. And if attorney fees were required for each successful claim, without the safe harbor that renders Rule 11 toothless, we would be seeing far fewer frivolous defenses filed by defendants in these kinds of cases.

A 15% cap seems very low, considering the amount of resources and money the plaintiffs' attorneys have to invest, with costs for expert witness fees, in a class action, contingent fee case.
