Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 884 F.2d 581 (6th Cir. 1989)

Aug. 25, 1989

Before RALPH B. GUY, Jr., BOGGS, and ALAN E. NORRIS, Circuit Judges.


In this appeal from an order of the district court imposing sanctions under Fed. R. Civ. P. 11 against attorneys for plaintiffs, the attorneys contend sanctions are not warranted, and the beneficiaries of the sanctions, in their cross-appeal, complain that the sanctions are inadequate.

Having thoroughly considered the record on appeal, the briefs of the parties to the appeal, and the arguments of counsel, we are unable to say that the trial court abused its discretion either in imposing sanctions under Fed. R. Civ. P. 11, or in computing the amount of monetary sanctions awarded. In calculating the amount of the award, the trial court consciously balanced conflicting equities in arriving at a reasonable measure of the amount to be assessed.

Accordingly, the orders appealed from are AFFIRMED.

BOGGS, Circuit Judge, concurs in the result.
