No. C 16-05961 WHA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
GLORIA ROMAN, GERARDO VAZQUEZ,
ORDER RE OBJECTION TO
BILL OF COSTS
An order dated May 24, 2017, granted summary judgment in favor of defendant Jan-Pro
Franchising International, and entered judgment in its favor (Dkt. Nos. 266, 267). Jan-Pro
submitted a bill of costs, seeking recovery of costs of taking the depositions of plaintiffs Gloria
Roman, Gerardo Vasquez, and Juan Aguilar as well as plaintiffs’ expert, Steven Cumbow (Dkt.
No. 270-2). The total bill is approximately $3,535.40.
Plaintiffs do not object to any individual cost; however, they oppose an award of costs
altogether on the grounds that paying these costs would be a hardship for them due to their
limited financial resources, and awarding costs would discourage future meritorious wage and
labor suits (Dkt. No. 271). Jan-Pro may respond to plaintiffs arguments by JULY 6
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 29, 2017.
