Rules of Civil Procedure – Effective November 1, 2016
URCP054 Judgment; costs. Amend. Establishes a process to add attorney fees and costs to a judgment.
URCP058A Entry of judgment; abstract of judgment. Amend. In conjunction with amendments to rule 4 of the Utah Rules of Appellate Procedure, establishes a new policy on time in which to appeal a judgment when a motion for attorney fees has been filed. A motion for attorney fees would have the same effect as a motion under rules 50, 52, and 59 of the Rules of Civil Procedure, extending the time in which to appeal to 30 days after the order on the motion, effectively overturning ProMax Development Corp. v. Raile, 2000 UT 4, 998 P.2d 254.
URCP073 Attorney fees. Amend. Modifies the process for claiming attorney fees. Adopts many features of FRCP 54(d).
