Clarence E. Johnson, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Baylor College of Medicine et al., Defendants-appellees, 625 F.2d 718 (5th Cir. 1980)Annotate this Case
United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.
Sept. 4, 1980.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas; Woodrow B. Seals, Judge.
Clementine Hannah, Houston, Tex., for plaintiff-appellant.
Fulbright & Jaworski, A. J. Harper, II, Susan J. Piller, Houston, Tex., for defendants-appellees.
Before GEE, HENDERSON and HATCHETT, Circuit Judges.
The judgment of the court below is AFFIRMED.
The court further concludes that this appeal--contesting only the taxation as costs of a $211 court reporter's fee for taking and transcribing of the losing plaintiff's deposition--is frivolous. Double costs and attorneys' fees are therefore awarded appellees, and the cause is REMANDED for their determination.
AFFIRMED AND REMANDED.
