A Novel Precedent

Submitted by patentadmin on Tue, 10/20/2009 - 19:15

Recently, we wrote about a lawyer whose motion was denied because it was so riddled with errors as to be incomprehensible (see Most Embarrassing Moment). We now have a Wisconsin state court case where a lawyer was fined $100 for getting a case citation wrong.

The Court was apparently frustrated in its attempts to find the mis-cited case and gave vent to its frustration by fining the unnamed attorney. Holding lawyers to professional standards – who knows where this could lead?
