Judge sanctions lawyer and client $150K, citing ‘mountain of evasiveness’ and ‘outright lies’

 Long time readers of this blog know that I often complain that judges do not do enough to sanction attorneys who misbehave during the process of discovery in litigation.  So, it is refreshing to see a story that proves me wrong.  The ABA Journal is reporting that a Texas judge has ordered a Houston-area lawyer and his client to be jointly sanctioned $150,000 for the client’s “outright lies” in litigation and “a mountain of evasiveness” in discovery.  Go here for the story.
