Mitchell v. Lyons Professional Services, Inc.

(United States Second Circuit) – Judgment denying plaintiff’s motion to execute a monetary judgment entered, as a sanction for plaintiff’s attorney misconduct, is vacated and remanded, where although the district court had more than an adequate basis to sanction plaintiff’s counsel and accorded the required procedural safeguards, further findings are needed to support a sanction that falls entirely on the clients rather than principally on the lawyer.
