MICHAEL H. SIMON, District Judge.
On December 16, 2014, the Court found Respondents ILWU and ILWU Local 8 in contempt of the preliminary injunction issued by the Court, enjoining Respondents from engaging in certain work slowdowns and stoppages at Terminal 6 at the Port of Portland. Dkt. 114. The Court found Respondents ILWU and ILWU Local 8 in contempt for the time period from July 20, 2012 through August 13, 2013. The Court ordered as one of the remedies that Respondents pay to Petitioner all reasonable costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, incurred by Petitioner in the investigation, preparation, presentation, and final disposition of the contempt proceeding. On February 13, 2015, Petitioner filed an affidavit detailing their costs and expenses, in the amount of $59, 628.18. Dkt. 121. Respondents did not object to the requested costs and expenses.
The Court has reviewed Petitioner's requested costs and expenses (Dkt. 121) and finds them reasonable. Accordingly, Respondents are ordered to pay Petitioner $59, 628.18 as reasonable costs and expenses incurred in investigating and litigating the civil contempt proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
