RULES OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

PROCEDURAL RULES 1 TO 34

Rule 23. Taxation of Costs; Waiver; Attorney's Fees.


       The clerk of the supreme court shall audit and allow bills of costs accruing in this court, and certify the costs to the trial court with the order made in the case. The following costs shall be allowed to the prevailing party: the entry fee, the actual cost of reproducing and binding the notice of appeal and any appendix, the actual cost of reproducing and binding the brief and any appendix, and cost of transcript.

Costs will be deemed waived if a request for taxation of costs with itemization is not filed within 30 days after the date on the order in the case.

In the interest of justice in extraordinary cases, but not as a matter of right, the supreme court in its sole discretion may award attorney's fees related to an appeal to a prevailing party if the appeal is deemed by the court to have been frivolous or in bad faith.
