In Alyeska Pipeline Serv. Co. v. Wilderness Soc'y, 421 U.S. 240, 247 (1975), the U.S. Supreme Court reiterated the "American rule" prohibiting the winner in a lawsuit from recovering legal fees from the loser: "the prevailing litigant is ordinarily not entitled to collect a reasonable attorneys' fee from the loser."
