IN RE: THE GUARDIANSHIP OF LR
ORDER GRANTING THE DECEMBER 21, 2016 “MOTION TO DISMISS APPEAL”
Upon consideration of Petitioner-Appellant's (Appellant) December 21, 2016 Motion to Dismiss Appeal (Motion), Father-Appellee's (Father) December 27, 2016 Memorandum in Partial Opposition to the Motion, the papers in support, and the record, it appears that, pursuant to Hawai‘i Rules of Appellate Procedure (HRAP) Rule 42(b), Appellant seeks to dismiss this docketed appeal, with the parties to bear their own attorneys' fees and costs on appeal, and Father agrees the appeal should be dismissed but claims he should be awarded attorneys' fees and costs, pursuant to HRAP Rule 39, for preparing the proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law in the underlying case, FC-G No. 15-1-0060. Under the circumstances of this case, we decline to award fees and costs to Father.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the motion is granted and the appeal is dismissed. The parties shall bear their own attorneys' fees and costs on appeal.
