TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - 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 reports (https://bit.ly/1cZaglA) 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.
