The District Court of Minnesota has put up an amended Bill of Costs Guide in order to conform to the recent US Supreme Court decision regarding document translation services (previously reported on this blog) and the taxation of costs statute.
You can access the Bill of Costs Guide here.
In sum, on page 10, the Guide states that translation services are not taxable costs.
Court Orders Payment of E-Discovery Costs Pursuant to Title 28 U.S.C. § 1920(4) : Electronic Discovery Law
Race Tires Amer., Inc. v. Hoosier Racing Tire, Corp., No. 2:07-cv-1294, 2011 WL 1748620 (W.D. Pa. May 6, 2011)
Following summary judgment, the Clerk of Court issued his Taxation of Costs which allowed for recovery of defendants’ e-discovery costs. Plaintiffs objected, arguing that such costs were not taxable pursuant to Title 28 U.S.C. § 1920 and sought review of the issue. Following careful analysis, the court upheld the determination of the Clerk of Court.
