First off, I'm surprised. I hope Wallace will appeal. As for "costs"...

The award of costs is not a penalty but is a method used to reimburse 
an innocent party for the expenses of litigation. Costs include the 
payment of court fees for the commencement of the litigation; the 
submission of pleadings or other documents; or the service of process 
or other papers by a public officer. The appointment by a court of a 
referee to hear extremely technical testimony, or a receiver to retain 
and preserve the defendant's funds or property during litigation, is 
included in costs. Costs entail expenditures made in interviewing 
parties or witnesses prior to trial and the fees that are properly 
paid to witnesses who testify. Printing expenses for maps or necessary 
documents are also included.

Costs do not include the compensation of an attorney. Expenditures in 
terms of the adversary nature of the proceedings, however, are included. 
Only when specifically authorized by law may attorney's fees be awarded 
in addition to costs.
