Zenon Pharmaceuticals (d/b/a and hereinafter referred to as Pharmacy Matters).  OPINION HOLDS: Because the district court’s calculation of damages was supported by sufficient evidence and properly awarded interest, we affirm the damage award.  But because common-law attorney fees were not justified, we reverse with respect to attorney fees and remand for entry of judgment consistent with our opinion.
