If a lawyer has nothing to do with a case, can that lawyer be sanctioned for a co-worker’s alleged misconduct?
26 states sued to block enforcement of the administration’s policy to defer action on deportations. The United States Supreme Court heard argument in April.
Meanwhile, last month, the federal district judge who presided over the initial challenge issued an order sanctioning DOJ attorneys. Not just the attorneys involved in the matter before him, but every DOJ attorney based in DC.
Not surprisingly, DOJ objected.
Yesterday, the district judge agreed to stay implementation of his order pending a hearing set for August 22.
