Egregious frivolousness = $50K appellate sanctions

For today's installment of appellate sanctions, check out this published opinion from 4/1 in Bucur v. Ahmad, in which appellants and appellants' counsel are hit with $31,311 in sanctions payable to respondent and $25,000 payable to the court.
As exhaustively outlined above, four trial judges, one arbitrator and one appellate court have previously concluded that Appellants' repetitive claims in five versions of essentially the same case underlying this appeal are meritless. Appellants' persistent but vacuous pursuit of the same repetitive claims that give rise to this appeal constitutes an egregious example of frivolousness.
