ATTORNEY FEES AND EXPENSES
(a) Generally. If applicable law grants to a party the right to recover reasonable attorney fees or expenses on review before either the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court, the party must request the fees or expenses as provided in this rule, unless a statute specifies that the request is to be directed to the trial court.

argument must be included in the motion if the requesting
party has not yet filed a brief.
