Request By Opposing Party Was $44,744.
For you readers who are charting things like this, the Second District, Division 6 was confronted with a party’s request for $44,744 in sanctions for opposing a frivolous appeal. Although the appellate court agreed the appeal was frivolous, it believed $7,500 was a sufficient sanction to discourage like conduct in the future—a deterrence rationale.
