Baca v. Berry: Reply in Support of Motion for Sanctions

Court Level
Tenth Circuit

Defendant reply in support of Motion for Sanctions. It is argued that the city and its attorneys came nowhere close to showing that the cross-appeal was non-frivolous and filed in good faith. Nor have they convincingly argued that Plaintiffs’ counsel seek an unreasonable amount of attorneys’ fees. The Court should therefore sanction the city and its attorneys under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 38 and 28 U.S.C. § 1927 and order them to pay Plaintiffs’ counsel the full amount requested.
