Court costs can be recovered by the prevailing party as a matter of course, unless the court directs otherwise. This includes filing fees, court reporter fees if necessary to use transcripts in the case, printing and witness fees, and compensation for court-appointed experts. What constitutes a prevailing party is not always obvious. The plaintiff need not win on all claims to recover costs as the prevailing party. Sometimes the defendant may recover costs, as for instance if the case is dismissed with prejudice. Some statutes provide specifically for award of attorneys' fees as costs, such as in the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. 18 U.S.C. §1926(c).
