Reiser v. ThorpeNo. 20120137
[¶1] Jan Reiser and Auto-Owners Insurance Company (collectively "Reiser") appeal from a judgment awarding Roger Thorpe, doing business as Roger's Staining and Roger's Staining, Inc. (collectively "Thorpe"), $98,543.84 in costs and disbursements incurred in Thorpe's defense of Reiser's unsuccessful lawsuit. Reiser argues the district court erred in awarding Thorpe approximately $91,000 in expert witness fees and in approving other miscellaneous expenses because the fees and expenses were not reasonable. We conclude the court did not abuse its discretion and affirm the judgment under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(4).
