I, 'JUSTIN L. THOMAS , attorney for plaintiff(s), declare as follows: r~~~~~~#.!;!;!.!.!.!:.~.:u....!;.lin~th~is action on 11/3/2017 , by the Honorable Erica P. Grosjean , United States District Judge/Magistrate Judge. I believe that the following course of action is reasonably necessary to the prosecution of this action: Expenses for service of subpoenas on witnesses for trial (based on estimate from First Legal Support Services, e-mail correspondence attached); payment to each witness for 1 day ($40) at trial and round trip mileage to court from home as follows: Bonnie DaViega (aka Bonnie Bolstad) $40/day, $34.24 mileage (64 miles r/t), Service Fee $77.75 =$151.99 Christopher Joseph Lesniak $40/day, $44.94 mileage (84 miles r/t), Service Fee $77.75 = $162.69 Peter Martin Morales $40/day, $117.70 mileage (220 miles r/t), Service Fee $61.25 = $218.95 Alexander M. Kushnier, MD $40/day, $211.86 mileage (396 miles r/t), Service Fee $109.00 = $360.86 Richard H. Speidel! $40/day, $70.90 mileage (140 miles r/t), Service Fee $94.50 = $205.40 Stephen C. Henderson $40/day, $117.70 mileage (220 miles r/t), Service Fee $61.25 = $218.95 Counsel seeking reimbursement must support all claimed expenses by submitting invoices, receipts or similar documentation. Without such documentation, counsel will not be reimbursed. I have made reasonable inquiry and believe that the cost of this course of action will not exceed the amount of $11318.84 I therefore request that this court authorize the expenditure in an amount not to exceed that stated above for the completion of this contemplated course of action.
