Rule 54 Judgment and Costs (a) Attorney fees. When any party claims the right to recover attorney fees by contract, statute, or court rule, that fact shall be brought to the attention of the Court immediately following its decision on the merits of the case, or the delivery of the jury verdict. If the Court then determines that an award of attorney fees may be appropriate, the Court may require the party requesting attorney fees to provide the Court with an affidavit detailing the fees incurred. The Court may either make an award of attorney fees and include it in the judgment, or schedule the matter for further argument. (d) Costs. Costs shall be fixed and allowed as provided in RCW 12.20.060 or by any other applicable statute.
