§59-2-8. Costs on final judgment; judgment for, or discontinuance
as to, some of defendants.
Except where it is otherwise provided, the party for whom
final judgment is given in any action, or in a motion for judgment
for money, whether he be plaintiff or defendant, shall recover his
costs against the opposite party; and when the action is against
two or more, and there is judgment for or discontinuance as to some
but not all of the defendants, those for whom there is judgment, or
as to whom there is such discontinuance, shall recover their costs.
