Bill of Costs
My case was thrown out under summary judgement Federal, in May 2005, in Aug 06, Ireceived a bill of costs for 2,297.75. Part of this 1,400 is from March of 2003. Is there a statue of limitation on the prevailing party to charge this? Had the charge of 1,400 past the limitation time? We never went to court...railroaded out of my day in court. thanks

Re: Bill of Costs
A summary judgment is still a judgment. Ordinarily a summary judgment will include a provision for recovery of court costs. A judgment is good for 10 years. Upon meeting certain requirements, it can be renewed for successive 10 periods.
Because you are a long way off from 10 years, I can say with some confidence that the court cost award included in the judgment is not barred by limitations.
