STATEMENT

On August 20, 2012, this Court entered summary judgment in favor of the defendant, who now seeks to recover costs in the amount of $6,112.77. For the reasons stated below, the motion for costs is granted in part. The defendant is awarded costs in the amount of $3,182.20.

(5) Docket fees under section 1923 of this title;

(6) Compensation of court appointed experts, compensation of interpreters, and salaries, fees, expenses, and costs of special interpretation ...
