Litigating? Be nice or face the wrath.

In an order dated January 26, 2012, Chief Judge Gerald Rosen of the Eastern District of Michigan sua sponte sanctioned plaintiffs’ counsel $1,000.   The offense?   The “transparent gamesmanship” of opposing the defendant’s out-of-time Answer to plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint.
