Even After Federal Court Remands Case to State Court Sanctions Can Be Awarded

DESERT SCHOOLS FEDERAL CREDIT UNION v. Johnson, Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit 2012 – Google Scholar.

This is an unpublished decision in which a lawyer was sanctioned after a case was remanded to the state court. The lawyer argued that the district court lost jurisdiction to award sanctions after the case was remanded. Under well-settled law, the district did not lose jurisdiction and the sanctions award was affirmed.

Edward X. Clinton, Jr.
