Judge orders University of Alabama to pay artist's court costs

A federal judge has ruled that the University of Alabama should pay nearly $17,000 in court costs to an artist known for painting iconic images of Crimson Tide athletic events.

The Tuscaloosa News reported that the judge's decision in favor of artist Daniel Moore comes after an eight-year legal battle with the university.

In an order signed this week, District Court Judge Abdul Kallon set Moore's court costs at $16,962.76. Moore originally requested $22,254.06, and the university argued it should not pay more than $15,197.46.

Moore is also seeking attorney fees from UA, which opposes the request.

The artist has been painting scenes of Alabama sporting events for years, but he and the university had a falling out around 2000. Five years later, the school sued Moore.
