YOu were kind enough to inform me that Entry of Judgement

Customer Question

YOu were kind enough to inform me that Entry of Judgement awarded the defendant "costs according to proof", in a Summary Judgement that went against me, the plaintiff. As mentioned, I will eventually get the cost itemization. Do I assume correctly that it would be unusual for those costs to include all Legal fees? Thank you, Frank

Good evening,

Thanks for asking for me.

In contract actions (suits for Breach of Contract) where the contract language calls for the prevailing party to be awarded reasonable attorney fees, then in most instances the court will award them to the prevailing party on request following a judgment.

Otherwise, attorney fees are not normally ordered by the judge.
