IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS FORT SMITH DIVISION
ROSS PARKHURST and AMY PARKHURST, individually and as next friend of H.P., a minor child under the age of eighteen v. CHAD BELT, an individual Civ. No. 07-2068
ORDER Before the Court is Plaintiffs' Bill of Costs Related to Appeal (Doc. 167). Plaintiffs seek the taxation of costs
against Defendant in the amount of $2,413.71 for the preparation and transmission of the record to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Pursuant to Rule 39(a)(2) & (e)(1) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, costs of the preparation and transmission of the record are taxable against the appellant if the judgment is affirmed. Both parties appealed in this case, however, the
Eighth Circuit designated the appeals as Cross-Appeals, and the Parkhursts were charged with preparing and transmitting the record, as they filed their appeal first. On June 9, 2009, the
Eighth Circuit affirmed the Court's judgment against Appellant Chad Belt. (Doc. 172-1). On June 25, 2009, the Eighth Circuit
affirmed the Court's judgment against Appellants Ross and Amy Parkhurst. (Doc. 174-2).
