Sanctions imposed against Trump's lawyers affirmed on appeal

 It is difficult to keep up with all the different legal actions that Trump is in the middle of these days.  A few days ago I reported on an order in federal court imposing almost a million dollars in sanctions against Trump and his lawyers.  See here and here.

Now comes news that in a different case a judge found Trump to be in civil contempt for delaying or evading discovery requests and imposed a sanction of $10,000 per day until Trump complies with discovery as ordered by the court.

Trump and his lawyers appealed the order, but two days ago the order was upheld by an appellate court.  You can read the two page order here.
