Sanctions: the federal law of litigation abuse
The sanctions movement continues to gain momentum. The federal courts have issued thousands of awards, many in excess of $1,000,000 against attorneys & parties engaging in litigation abuse. With new Rules 11, 26(g), & 37, the federal courts have created new regions of vulnerability for unwary attorneys. In Sanctions: The Federal Law on Litigation Abuse, Second Edition, author Gregory P. Joseph analyzes all the new rules & the other federal rules & statutes under which attorneys face sanctions.
