COST - TAXATION/PAYMENT
District Local Rules 54.1 and 54.2 apply to motions for attorney’s fees and the taxation of costs, respectively, in adversary proceedings.
Advisory Committee Notes
The amended rule includes one substantive change, removing the original 30-day time period for taxing costs and the filing of fee motions. In its place, the current rule confirms that the standard District Local Rules will apply, which provide procedural requirements in addition to timing details. Of particular note is the standard time period under the District Local Rules, as of the time of this amendment, is 14 days from the entry of judgment or closing of the case. This reflects a significant reduction in the time period under the previous local rule but is now more consistent with standard federal practice.
