7th Circuit Imposes $5K in Sanctions against an Attorney who Made Serious Errors

Where an attorney made series of mistakes, including failing to timely file suits on behalf of defendants causing the running of statute of limitations, and causing three orders to show cause why appeal should not be dismissed, the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued $5,000 in monetary sanctions against the attorney and ordered him to serve copies of this opinion on his clients so they may consider bringing malpractice actions against him.
