In October, the circuit court dismissed the action based on the stipulation of the parties. Gibbs subsequently moved the court for judgment against Dane County for the costs and fees he incurred, including $300 in attorney’s fees and $36 for jury fees, under Chapter 778, WIS. STAT. §§ 814.04 and 814.23. The court denied Gibbs’ motion. Gibbs appeals.
