Attorney's Fees

In any suit brought against a defendant, if the court finds that the defendant has met the standards set forth in the Act, and the defendant substantially prevails, the court shall, at the conclusion of the action, award to the defendant the cost of the suit attributable to such claim, including a reasonable attorney's fee, if the claim, or the claimant's conduct during the litigation of the claim, was frivolous, unreasonable, without foundation, or in bad faith. A defendant shall not be considered to have substantially prevailed when the plaintiff obtains an award for damages or permanent injunctive or declaratory relief. (sec. 11113)
