Medina v. Catholic Health Initiatives (USDC CO, January 17, 2017) – $75,516.35 in data processing fees not recoverable by prevailing party because “language of the statute” (28 U.S.C. § 1920)…”is narrow and controlling” and only allows for recovery of “those ESI costs which actually constitute the making of copies”.
