DOJ v. Hudson, 09-3600-bk

Finding no reason to depart from our reasoning in Pietrangelo or Hawkins, and joining our sister Circuits that have considered this provision of the IRC, see McCormack v. United States, 891 F.2d 24, 25 (1st Cir. 1989) and United States v. McPherson, 840 F.2d 244, 245 (4th Cir. 1988), we hold that lawyers appearing pro se who prevail in administrative or court proceedings against the United States are ineligible for attorneys' fees under IRC ァ7430.
