Rule 11



March 2014: David Tufts and Matt Orme obtained a Rule 11 sanction in litigation for our clients who were being sued on claims that were unsupportable.  At our urging, the court recognized that the plaintiffs had failed to conduct objectively reasonably research and inquiry before asserting claims against our clients, and because of this the plaintiffs were ordered to reimburse our clients’ attorney fees and costs.  This followed the ruling in the same case that DJP obtained in February 2014, whereby the court had dismissed all the plaintiffs’ claims against our clients with prejudice on a motion to dismiss before the clients had to file an answer in the case.
