United States District Court, N.D. California
November 18, 2005.
MARYLON M. BOYD, EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF CAMMERIN BOYD Plaintiff,
ALAMEDA COUNTY, et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: SUSAN ILLSTON, District Judge
ORDER GRANTING IN PART AND DENYING IN PART PLAINTIFF'S OBJECTION
TO DEFENDANTS' BILLS OF COST
On September 6, 2005, the Court granted summary judgment in
favor of defendants, and defendants thereafter timely filed their
bills of costs. On November 18, 2005, the Court heard oral
argument on plaintiff's objections to defendants' bills of costs.
An award of statutorily recoverable costs to the prevailing party
is permitted as a matter of course unless the Court directs
otherwise. Fed.R.Civ.P. 54(d)(1).
The Court GRANTS plaintiff's objection to the cost of the
reproduction of the exhibits that accompanied the deposition of
plaintiff's expert witness, Dr. Weinstein, as plaintiff had
previously produced the exhibits. Each defendant's bill of cost
shall be reduced by the sum of $567.90. With that exception, the
Court DENIES all of plaintiff's remaining objections to
defendants' bills of costs. [Docket ## 308, 309]
IT IS SO ORDERED.
