More coverage on sanctions on Trump and his attorneys

Yesterday I reported that a federal court imposed almost a million dollars in sanctions on Donald Trump and his lawyers for a frivolous case that the court said "should never have been brought. Its inadequacy as a legal claim was evident from the start. No reasonable lawyer would have filed it." 

Interestingly, soon after the imposition of sanctions, the Trump team decided to withdraw another case they had filed in a different court, which suggests that the sanctions may have had an effect!   

Not surprisingly the news about the sanctions has generated a lot of coverage.  Here are some links:

And here are a few links on the story about the withdrawal of the other case
