I am wondering because I am considering to file a motion to tax costs, but that time period directly correlates with the entry of judgment. Please include any supportive law, whether it be local rules of court or not. This occurred in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Congratulations. The judgment should be entered promptly after the motion is granted. You as the prevailing party should submit a proposed judgment if the judge or clerk did not prepare one. All other motions follow entry of judgment and the time to appeal does not begin until a final judgment is entered. A motion to tax costs is what the other side will file if they disagree with your memorandum of costs.

I don't understand why you would file a motion to tax costs if you won. That is a motion that the losing party files when the prevailing party files a memorandum of costs after a judgment. Are you mixed up?
