  • 19 Award Of Costs To Prevailing Party

    "Legal Lexicon":
    AWARD OF COSTS TO PREVAILING PARTY - Fed.R.Civ.P. 54(d)(1) provides, in pertinent part, that 'costs other than attorneys' fees shall be allowed as of course to the prevailing party unless the court otherwise directs.' Fed.R.Civ.P. 54(d)(1). Rule 54(d)(1) creates a presumption in favor of awarding costs to the prevailing party. See Klein v. Grynberg, 44 F.3d 1497, 1506 (10th Cir.'95); Congregation of the Passion v. Touche, Ross & Co., 854 F.2d 219, 22 (7th Cir.'88). This presumption is supported by the explicit language of Rule 54(d)(1), which makes the award of costs to a prevailing party automatic in the absence of an express direction to the contrary by the district court. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 54(d)(1) (providing that costs 'shall be allowed as of course... unless the court otherwise directs'); see also Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine v. George A. Fuller Co., 801 F.2d 908, 10 (7th Cir.'86); Subscription Television, Inc. v. Southern Cal. Theatre Owners Ass'n, 576 F.2d 230, 34 (9th Cir.'78).
    The unsuccessful litigant can overcome this presumption by pointing to some impropriety on the part of the prevailing party that would justify a denial of costs. See Delta Airlines, Inc. v. Colbert, 692 F.2d 489, 90 (7th Cir.'82); Popeil Bros., Inc. v. Schick Electric, Inc., 516 F.2d 772, 775-6 (7th Cir.'75). The loser bears this burden because the denial of costs is by nature a penalty. See Smith v. Southeastern Penn. Transp. Auth., ___ F.3d ___, No. 94-1634 1995 WL 53174, ///
    "Legal Lexicon":
    2 (3d Cir., Feb. 10, '95) (per curiam); Serna v. Manzano, 616 F.2d 1165, 67 (10th Cir.'80). A district court therefore generally must award costs unless the prevailing party is guilty of some fault, misconduct, or default worthy of punishment. See Delta Airlines, at 490.
    Most courts have rejected arguments that good faith in prosecuting the underlying action should defeat the presumption in favor of awarding costs. All parties to a federal action have an obligation to act in good faith and with proper purpose. See, e.g., Fed.R.Civ.P. 11; Model Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 3.1 (1994). It follows that noble intentions alone do not relieve an unsuccessful litigant of the obligation under Rule 54(d) to compensate his opponent for reasonable costs. 'If the awarding of costs could be thwarted every time the unsuccessful party is a normal, average party and not a knave, Rule 54(d)(1) would have little substance remaining.' Popeil Bros., at 776.
    Difficulty alone does not justify penalizing the prevailing parties. Cf. Klein v. Grynberg, 44 F.3d at 1507 ('We find no justification to penalize 【the prevailing party】 because this litigation was complex or lengthy.'). But see White & White, Inc. v. American Hosp. Supply Corp., 786 F.2d 728, 733 (6th Cir.'86) (holding that length and difficulty of a case may be a factor in the decision to deny costs).
    The district court generally must award costs unless equity demands otherwise due to some impropriety on the part of the prevailing party during the course of the litigation. See Smith, ______ F.3d at ______, 1995 WL 53174 at ///
    "Legal Lexicon":
    2 (citing ADM Corp. v. Speedmaster Packaging Corp., 525 F.2d 662, 65 (3d Cir.'75), and Chicago Sugar Co. v. American Sugar Refining Co., 176 F.2d 1, 11 (7th Cir.'49), cert. denied, 338 U.S. 948 ('50)).

  • 20 COSTS

    "Legal Lexicon":
    COSTS - The expenses of a suit or action which may be recovered by law from the losing party. Such allowable costs are often defined by statute or by a court's rules, and, under the American Rule, in most cases they do not include attorney fees. In England and many other nations, lawyers fees are often recoverable by the prevailing party.
    At common law, neither the plaintiff nor the defendant could recover costs economic; but in all actions in which damages were recoverable, the plaintiff, in effect, recovered his costs when he obtained a verdict, for the jury always computed them in the damages. When the defendant obtained a verdict or the plaintiff became non-suit, the former was wholly without remedy for any expenses he had incurred. It is true, the plaintiff was amerced pro falso clamore suo, but the amercement was given to the king.
    This defect was afterwards corrected by the statute of Gloucester by which it is enacted that 'the demandant in assise of novel disseisin, in writs of mort d'ancestor, cosinage, aiel and be sail, shall have damages. And the demandant shall have the costs of the writ purchased, together with damages, and this act shall hold place in all cases where the parly recovers damages, and every person shall render damages where land is recovered against him upon his own intrusion, or his own act.' About forty-six years after the passing of this statute, costs were for the first time allowed in France.
    The statute of Gloucester has been adopted, substantially, in all the United States. Though it speaks of the costs of the writ only, it has, by construction, been extended to the costs of the suit generally. The costs which are recovered under it are such as shall be allowed by the master or prothonotary upon taxation, and not those expenses which the plaintiff may have incurred for himself, the extraordinary fees he may have paid counsel, or for the loss of his time.
