POW! $25K sanctions award!

Fireworks from 4/3 today. Check out the sanctions award of $25K+ here (pp. 21-25) in the unusually captioned matter of Roe 1 et al. v. Doe 2, Supervisory Organization et al. (Nonparty Does 1-7, Appellants).

[On the topic of sanctions, albeit not appellate sanctions, see Stan Lee’s Daughter Sanctioned $1 Million for Frivolous IP Case about an order from CD Cal Judge Wright. Yes, that's $1M in sanctions, with counsel on the hook for $250K. An appeal has been vowed in the press. See here.]

Also enjoy the nice use of "Aha!" on page 11 of the 4/3 decision here!
