Rule 42. Interest and Damages
- 1. If a judgment for money in a civil case is affirmed, any interest allowed
by law is payable from the date the judgment under review was entered. If
a judgment is modified or reversed with a direction that a judgment for money
be entered below, the courts below may award
interest to the extent permitted by law. Interest in cases arising in a state court is allowed
at the same rate that similar judgments bear interest in the courts of the
State in which judgment is directed to be entered. Interest in cases arising
in a court of the United States is allowed at the interest rate authorized
- 2. When a petition for a writ of certiorari, an appeal, or an application
for other relief is frivolous, the Court may award the respondent or appellee
just damages, and single or double costs under Rule 43.
Damages or costs may be awarded against the petitioner, appellant, or applicant,
against the party's counsel, or against both party and counsel.
