Heller Ehrman LLP v. Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
ORDER re 26 Bill of Costs, filed by Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. Signed by Judge Charles R. Breyer on 07/25/2014. (crblc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 7/25/2014).
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. C 14-01236 CRB
HELLER EHRMAN LLP,
ORDER AWARDING COSTS
DAVIS WRIGHT TREMAINE LLP,
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
After the Court granted summary judgment, Defendant filed, pursuant to Federal Rule
of Civil Procedure 54(d), a Bill of Costs (dkt. 26) seeking a total of $39,934.37. Now before
the Court are Plaintiff’s objections (dkt. 29) to the Bill of Costs. Under Rule 54(d), there is a
presumption that the prevailing party will be awarded its taxable costs. See Save Our Valley
v. Sound Transit, 335 F.3d 932, 944 (9th Cir. 2003). To overcome this presumption, a losing
party must establish a reason to deny costs. See Stanley v. Univ. of S. Cal., 178 F.3d 1069,
1079 (9th Cir. 1999). Here, Plaintiff has specifically identified “extras” which are for
convenience of the lawyers and not properly billable to Plaintiff in the amount of $2,822.00.
Plaintiff’s other objections are OVERRULED. Accordingly, Plaintiff is ORDERED to pay a
total of $37,112.74 in taxable costs.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 25, 2014
