Highlight

When a party requests attorney's fees under N.D.C.C. 28-26-01(2), the court must first determine whether a claim is frivolous. If it determines the claim is frivolous, the court must then award reasonable attorney's fees to the prevailing party.
Under N.D.C.C. 28-26-31, a court is authorized to award attorney's fees for allegations and denials in any pleadings in court, made without reasonable cause and not in good faith, and found to be untrue.
Under Rule 11, N.D.R.Civ.P., a district court may award sanctions against an attorney or a represented party, or both, if they violate the rule's requirements.
