JUNEAU- The state of Alaska doesn't plan to seek costs in a lawsuit brought against Sarah Palin.
   
The state helped defend Palin in the case brought by activist Chip Thoma that stemmed from her time as governor. U.S. District Judge Timothy Burgess last year dismissed the matter, saying Thoma didn't provide evidence necessary to support his claims.
   
Burgess ordered that Palin recover costs but last month denied her request for more than $22,000 in attorney fees.
   
Her personal attorney said at the time that Palin didn't plan to pursue costs, and on Tuesday, Assistant Attorney General Dale House said the state didn't, either.
   
House said recoverable costs in a case like this are very limited, and probably apply to things like copying.
   
He says this be the end of the case.
