In a recent decision from the United States Supreme Court, Rimini Street v. Oracle USA, Inc., the Court addressed the issue of whether in a Copyright Act case, expenses not included within the six categories of costs in 28 U.S.C. §§ 1821 and 1920 may be awarded against the losing party to litigation.  In the decision, the Supreme Court noted that the Copyright Act does not explicitly authorize the award of litigation expenses beyond the six categories specified in §§ 1821 and 1920, which do not authorize an award for expenses such as expert witness fees, eDiscovery expenses and jury consultant fees.  An addendum to the Kevin Brady and Michael Kearney article discussing the impact the Supreme Court’s decision might have on recovering eDiscovery costs as a prevailing party will be forthcoming.  Click here to read more.
