Ray Haluch Gravel Company, et al.
v.
Central Pension Fund of the International Union of Operating Engineers and Participating Employers, et al.
Question Presented:

In Budinich v. Becton Dickinson & Co., 486 U.S. 196 (1988), this Court held that a district court's decision on the merits that left unresolved a request for statutory attorney's fees was a "final decision" under 28 U.S.C. § 1291. The question presented in this case, on which there is an acknowledged conflict among nine circuits, is whether a district court's decision on the merits that leaves unresolved a request for contractual attorney's fees is a "final decision" under 28 U.S.C. § 1291.
